There is not much of a fortress (nowadays weather-related building), but to go there you can go through the middle of forests, and the views from the top are nice, especially on a clear day.

This is the best place for views overlooking Hvar harbor. It's quite the climb to get to the top but it's so worth it. You do have to pay to get into the fortress itself but it isn't too expensive and that's where you can...More

I've noticed that many reviews published under the name of Napolean Fortress actually belong to the Hvar Fortress. Please note, Hvar Fortress can be easily hiked from the town of Hvar, but Napolean Fortress is farther ahead and a car can easily reach up to...More

The fortress is in use as a tellecommunications facility, but the area has an incredible view of Hvar. Make it part of your tour for the view!

You can either follow the tarmac road or hike up the mountain. The hike path is fairly clean and the way is shown by red dots with a white inner circle painted on rocks. Trainers are a must. Best place for a sunrise or a...More
