Spanjola, Hvar

4.5
features an impressive collection of amphorae and other objects from ancient times and the Middle Ages. From the town square, walk north, passing the main city gate. Climb the stairs of the medieval city walls to the fortress. Perched on a hill, it offers a panoramic view of Old Town and Pakleni Islands. Built at the beginning of the 16th century, the fortress was restored after the explosion of the powder chamber in 1579. The French added some reinforcements during their rule. Austrians built the barracks and observation post. Using our custom trip planner, Hvar attractions like Spanjola can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Flippin eck. Worth the climb, bloody stu nina views :) crackin!!!
  • Beautiful gentle climb up through the narrow streets and long stairways of the old town. Then on up the winding path through the "herb garden" under the pine trees to the Fort at the top. Well preserved, great views and a nice cafe for a cold draught beer in the Fort itself. A fascinating time for about 2 to 3 hours.
  • Beautiful view of Hvar and the sea, with a very smooth and cozy path up the mountainside. Don't see why the entrance costs 40Kn per person though.
  • It is worth the climb up a ton of stairs... Or a quick drive up the hill.
  • The view on top of the hill was truly incredible! It was a nice and refreshing hike. We enjoyed it very much. A definite must-see!

Where to stay in Hvar

The island of Hvar caters to well-heeled travelers, so expect high prices and few bargain beds near the sea, especially at peak season. Stari Grad and Hvar Town draw the biggest crowds, though neither town offers budget-friendly hotels. Don't be put off by this, as you can find modestly priced accommodations in the form of private apartments rented by local families. If you've come to Hvar to splurge, check out the island's luxury hotels, with airy rooms, sea views, and access to private beaches.
