  • The Hvar Fortress was closed at this time of year, but the view at the wall and top of the walk was excellent. The morning would be the better time for photography.  more »
  • It's not beautiful, it is beautiful... A must see, it's still a great corner in the history of Croatia...

  • Wonderful fortress with great view from Above. Ticket entrance is worth the view. Probably one of the best sunset views I ever saw. I miss it.  more »

  • 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
