- The tower and museum
The tower and museum
In the center of Veli Lošinj you can find the circular tower built in the 15th century during the Venetian rule over the eastern Adriatic shore. This small tower with thick walls served for the defence of Veli Lošinj from hostile pirate ships. At the beginning of the 19th century, the tower lost its primary purpose and gained a symbolical meaning because it appeared on the emblem of Veli Lošinj. From 1997 to 2000 it was completely renovated – with the new wooden constructions, the staircase and the roof, it became a museum and gallery. The museum was opened in 2001 and its permanent display, on three floors, is a combination of thematic wholes and a chronological sequence of important parts of history of Veli Lošinj. On the third floor is the Kula gallery, where are the works of many different local artists are shown. A bronze statue of Apoxyomenos, which was found in the sea close to Veli Lošinj in 1999, is one of the most important exhibits in the museum.
