In the sleepy port town of Stari Grad, this fortified villa was built in 1520 as the summer residence of local Renaissance poet Petar Hektorović (1487-1572). The villa centers on an internal courtyard with a large fishpond and an adjoining walled garden, which is slightly overgrown but very whimsical and romantic. Hektorović intended that the entire population of Stari Grad be able to take shelter here in the event of an attack by the Ottoman Turks, who were a constant threat at the time.
