Hvar Town is presided over by an imposing 16th-century fortress, built on the site of an earlier medieval castle. It is well worth the hike up steep steps and a meandering footpath for photogenic views over Hvar Town’s terracotta rooftops and out to sea towards the scattered Pakleni islets. Within the fortress’s Venetian-era ramparts, you’ll find displays of amphorae found offshore, a spooky dungeon, and a café selling cold drinks. The fortress is stunning from below at night, when it is beautifully floodlit.
