The Šubićevac Fortress (Barone Fortress)
The Barone Fortress is located near St. John’s fortress. It was built in 1646 and the citizens named it the Baron Degenfeld Fortress, after a Venetian commander of Šibenik’s defence against Turks. The fortress significantly contributed to blocking the Turkish attack on Šibenik in 1647. Šibenik City Council bought the fortress and its surroundings in 1912. It was renamed after the famous aristocratic family Šubić. The Šubićevac Fortress is located at 80 meters above the sea level and offers a breathtaking view of Šibenik.
