Forte Mare Fortress (Herceg Novi-Montenegro)
The Forte Mare is the best preserved Herceg Novi fortress whose construction began during the reign of Prince Stjepan Vukčić in the 15th century, while the Turks renewed it during their rule. When Venetians conquered the city, the tower has been renewed for its own needs and has been called Forte Mare – Sea Fortress or Fortress of the Sea. It was built on solid sea rocks, and at the foot of the fort there is a water source used by the soldiers of the Holy League in 1687 to leave the city without drinking water. On the board above the source, the most beautiful lyrics dedicated to Boka Kotorska are engraved, the work of Aleks Šantić made in 1906. Today, there is a summer movie theater and an auditorium where the movies are played on daily basis.
