Spanjola, Hvar

4.6
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.

  • We took a taxi up to the fortress for 80kn total for 6 people, which is a good deal! Definitely worth the 40kn per person! Take a bottle of wine and/or beer at sunset and enjoy the gorgeous views!
  • Really worth the visit! Best views of this Croatian region! The castle climb has a great path and the views are rewarding. There is a bar inside the castle!
  • Beautiful views, hospitals inside, and a great hike. Be sure to follow the signs to get the and not Google maps, or you'll get lost.
  • Really great views of the city and amazing architecture! Worth the decent hike up the hill and entrance fee.
  • Very nice place with a very nice view of the port. The entrance is inexpensive, you will find some toilettes, a museum and a little cafeteria where you can find water and some ice cream.
