  • Great views, historic buildings of unique beauty. The Hvar fortress is a wonderful place to visit with calm (is worth noting at least one day to devote only this monument). If that's not enough well all that is around us deserves to be seen ... And enjoyed talking about the kitchen. The meat in particular is among the best, date with plenty at a price lower than the equivalent in Italy. Wine side instead the Italy WINS, but they are still good

  • Do not miss this trip for its magnificent harbour view! At sunset (you won't be alone) you will be able to take great photos. This allows to stroll the streets of Hvar & the old city. On the other hand, for those that repels the rise, it is also possible to go to the fort in car & parking at the foot of the entrance (two inputs / outputs).

  • The fortress of Hvar is well preserved and provides unforgettable views of this island that is pure charm! The ascent on foot is a bit pulled, but worth every stop to breathe better and get lost in the blue of the sea seen from above. Unforgettable!

  • The Spanjola fortress is quite a climb up from Hvar town but well worth it for the views out over the town and the nearby islands. The walk itself is very pleasant through well-maintained gardens. There is a small cafe in the fortress.
  • Impressive fortress at the top of mountains overlooking the town of Hvar. Great views. Little coffee shop. The walk up into the park is also very pleasant
  • It has some very nice views from up high. You can see the whole city. Entrance fee is 30Kn each. Worth it for the views. You can also grab a drink up there if you'd like. You should go if you're in the area.
  • Absolutely incredible views of Hvar and the sea. There's a cafe at the top too
  • the main tourist attraction in the town of Hvar - must visit, excellent views
