Trip Planner: Europe / Croatia / Dalmatia / Split-Dalmatia County / Hvar Island / Hvar / Spanish Fortress
Spanish Fortress features an impressive collection of amphorae and other objects from ancient times and the Middle Ages. From the town square, walk north, passing the main city gate. Climb the stairs of the medieval city walls to the fortress. Perched on a hill, it offers a panoramic view of Old Town and Pakleni Islands. Built at the beginning of the 16th century, the fortress was restored after the explosion of the powder chamber in 1579. The French added some reinforcements during their rule. Austrians built the barracks and observation post. Using our custom trip planner, Hvar attractions like Spanish Fortress can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Spanish Fortress reviews
Was a fun hike up to the fort (and back down!) admiring the beautiful gardens along the way. The fort itself is also fascinating and I wish we'd had a little more time to spend there! Views to die...

great views from a historical site. A few steps through the complex but quite easy to get around Would recommend particularly if you wish to get some good photos

Stunning views across Hvar town and the Adriatic Sea. Would be too much to walk to the top for people with limited mobility, but you can drive to the entrance. The winding walk to the top isn’t strenuous for anyone with average fitness levels. Not a huge amount to see inside, but there is a cafe bar selling coffee, alcohol and other refreshments after the mini hike.
Small payment to enter but well worth it for the views. You can see the whole marina and the small town. There is a nice little cafe/bar which has a good choice of drinks and not too badly priced. There is a small museum inside, some prison cells and a couple of gift shops, plenty of history to see.
