|Do you know that the oldest public theatre in Europe is in Hvar in Croatia? It was established in the 13th-century arsenal building. Do you know that Spanish fortress on a hill above the old town was built at the beginning of the 16th century? It was restored many times. And now you can have a beautiful panorama view of the town of Hvar and Pakleni Islands from the fortress. History is calling from the 15th-century Franciscan monastery, Benedictine Convent, Hvar town loggia, and a clock tower. In this city, history is not just in buildings. Before you finish the tour, try to see if you can find the historic cypress tree in the gardens that have been here since the 1700s. Enjoy this tour with us.
Walking along the riva past Carpe Diem, the Franciscan Monastery comes into view. Built in 1461, it was jointly financed by the nobles of Hvar and sea commanders as testament to their gratitude for many lives saved at sea near Hvar.
One of the lesser things written about Hvar is that it is the only island in the world which houses three UNESCO heritages: The Stari Grad Plain, the Za Krizem Easter Procession in Jelsa, and the lace from the Benedictine Nuns in Hvar Town.
Besides health benefits and natural beauties, the city of Hvar is famous for its cultural heritage.
