Stari Grad is located at the end of Stari Grad bay, a place where the blueness of the sea merges with the greenness of a large field – the antique Hora, protected by UNESCO from 2008. Uninterrupted history left numerous monuments of urban presence of men on the island.


The remains of the city walls of Pharos founded by Ancient Greeks in 385/4 B.C., the Roman mosaics, churches from the early Christian period, medieval street complexes and most of all Tvrdalj – the Renaissance fortified castle with a pond and a garden belonging to the poet Petar Hektorovic, testify presence of the 24 centuries of this city. A walk through the old town is like listening to the whispers from the bygone times.
