Great views, fort in good condition and nice cafe at the top! Better to go early or later in the day at the height of summer.

The history of the fort is quite interesting because it dates back to the Ancient Romans, but there is not a whole lot of explanation or a tour of sorts. It offers a nice view of the city, but that is about it.

Worth to make every step up there! Take water, sunscreen and a camera! It`s very blissful inside, there is even a small café.

Great view of Hvar town from the fort, well worth the walk to the summit. The fort is well kept and represented good value for the small entry fee.

We did this walk twice, once in the morning and then again with friends for sunset. The walk is not too bad, and you get great views of Hvar. There is a fee to enter the actual fortress. Inside you can visit the prison and other small rooms. However the main highlight is the views, however those who enjoy history... More

Went to Hvar island more for this than the beaches and couldn't be happier. The climb to the fortress is quite easy and offers fantastic views over the bays and Pakleni islands !

A nice little spot, it takes 10 minutes to reach by feet. Great little walk, and it has a great view of the city. I would go here, it will take no more than 1 hour to be done with this attraction. A must in Hvar :)
