Close your eyes for a moment and imagine the chaos of a medieval battle between the local citizens and the raiders and looters of the Adriatic! This took place right here. Thanks to its sweeping view over the sea, the fortress once protected the security of the island’s inhabitants, providing shelter and a means of defense against the attacks of Ottoman pirates.

From the top of the fortress you will experience majestic views over the neighboring island of Šipan, the national park on Mljet, and, on a clear day, past the Pelješac Peninsula all the way to Korčula, the reputed birthplace of Marco Polo!
