Owner description: St. Michael's fortress is situated on a hill, 70 m above sea level. White trimmed stone was used for its construction, which lasted from the 15th up to the 17th century. It covers about 2600 m2. During archaeological excavations, architectural remains and plenty of culture-historical artefacts from the times of the Venetian rule were found, but also the rests of the material culture from the Iron Age, which proves that the Croats built the fortress on the site of an ancient Illyrian town.

“Good observation point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

It's one of the best preseved fortresses in Croatia. As usual there's not much to see inside, but the views over Sibenik, the Cathedral, harbour are magnificent. The fortress is probably the only observation point to have a good view of the Cathedral, as it's squeezed between buildings and you can't get a proper view of it being on the same level with it.
