Amazing view form this old fortress located on the top of the hill. It is about half an hour of slow walk. Inside is very interesting.

“Tvrdava u Hvaru - a very special place!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

On the top of highest hill at town of Hvar there is a well kept Venetian fortress structured in 1551 to protect town from Turkish invaders who plundered Hvar in 1539 and 1571.
Fortress has collection of ancient amphoras found deep in the Jadran (Adriatic)
Excursion to the fortress is also worth-while live through the unfogettable sight over Jadran and Hell Islands (Pakleni Otoci)

“Great viewpoint to see the part of Hvar from above.”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

You should come here during you stay on Hvar island or Hvar town. The entrance to the Temple is 25 kuna. You will see the town from above and this is a great view. You can take a lot of pictures of the town it's beautiful and you can see the Paklenci otoci small islands near the Hvar town with the marina for Yachts. Can't remind the name of marina.
You can find the small cafe in the castle where you can get a shot of rakia.

“Worth the hike”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

It's a lot of steps and a lot of walking up an incline but the view from the top is quite spectacular. Check opening hours and times since it was closed to us when we got to the top--you could get the views anyway.
