The Fortress of St. Nicholas
St. Nicholas’ Fortress is located at the entrance to the St. Anthony Channel. The fortress was built in the 16th century, until then there was a monastery and the Church of St. Nicholas. The Fortress of St. Nicholas is a solid, safe fortress with a triangular floor-plan. It was built according to the designs of the Venetian military builder, Gian Girolamo Sanmicheli. It was built ti defend from Turkish attacks from the sea. Its lower part is built of white stone, while the upper part is made of bricks. At the sea level there are cannon holes, and once there were water tanks. The most interesting detail of the fortress is its front gate. Even today, the fortress looks almost the same as in the time when it was built.
