  • The Franciscan monastery
  • Hvar town loggia
  • The fortress-citadel in Hvar town

    Together with the city walls, the fortress forms an imposing stronghold. Its construction began in 1278, when Hvar was under Venetian rule. Archaeological finds however suggest that fortified constructions may already have existed in earlier times. In 1551 a new fortress was built on the site of the ancient fortification. Twenty years later, during the devastating attack by the Turks in 1571, the local residents found shelter and protection within its walls. The building was severely damaged by an explosion in 1579 after a thunderbolt had struck the gunpowder depot. It was not restored until the early 17th century under the reign of Prince Pietro Semitecolo.
  • The Cathedral of St. Stephan

    The cathedral is dedicated to St. Stephen – the pope, martyr and patron saint of Hvar. It stands in place of the former Benedictine monastery of St. Mary of Lesna which became a cathedral in the 13th century, when the bishopric was moved from Stari Grad to Hvar. The new cathedral building was constructed between the 16th and 18th century. The three-aisled basilica is equipped with a square shrine and a Renaissance sanctuary. The three-cornered gable of the late Renaissance façade symbolizes the Holy Trinity. The bell tower on the north side was created by local builders in 1549-1550.
  • The Franciscan monastery

    The church dedicated to the Virgin Mary was built in the 15th century as a single-nave Gothic structure in place of the small Chapel of the Holy Cross. It was financed by donations from Croatian nobles and ship captains who came to Hvar. Once completed, it became the church of the sailors, as indicated by many inscriptions by Venetian naval commanders in and around the church. The relief of the Madonna and Child in the lunette of the main portal is the work of Niccolo Fiorentino. The north aisle of the church with the Renaissance Chapel of the Holy Cross was built in 1536.
  • Hvar town loggia

    Hvar town loggia and a clock tower from the 15th century together are the only remains of the former Governor's Palace. The first Croatian Loggia in Hvar was first mentioned in 1289 and referred to again in the Statute of Hvar in 1331. At the beginning of the 20th century, the once adjacent Governor's Palace gave way to the spa hotel "Empress Elisabeth". The loggia now served as spa salon, café, reading room, and dance hall and was the meeting place of Croatia's social elite.
