The Fortica Fortress (Old Town)

The Fortica Fortress was built in the 15th century at the top of Omiška Dinara. The top of the fortress offers a one of a kind view over the islands of Brač, Hvar and Šolta, the Cetina canyon and Poljica. Other than as a lookout, the medieval inhabitants of Omiš also used Fortica as a place of refuge. The medieval inhabitants of Omiš sent huge boulders crashing down onto the town from the mountain top if the enemies came too close. Today’s remains of the fortress are the lookout and the marine aquatorium. There is a well-marked path leading to the fortress in less than an hour.
