Mirabella Fortress is a fortress located above town of Omiš in Split-Dalmatia County, in Dalmatia, Croatia.Mirabella or Peovica is a Romanesque fortress, built in 13th century above the town of Omiš. Mirabela was a reliable hideout for the Omiš pirates who used to retreat into the safety of the Cetina gorge. Legend says that in 1537, during an attack by the Turks, the defenders of Omiš confused the attackers with their shouting and shots so much that the Turks overestimated the number of defenders and fled.

  • It was a morning hike on pirate Tower Mirabela. Good time from 9.00 am, opening time Tower. Not yet hot, slight breeze, which makes climbing the Tower not very tedious. Recommend going with children, saw the school group. what kinds of views from the heights, it is impossible to describe in full volume. This need to do is you want to see the sea, the mountains, the mountain River Gorge of the River, town is beautiful, what colors! The whole hike takes about forty minutes back and forth , climbed on upper dome Tower, delight! you can only breathe with the wind!
