What to see in Stari Grad! Tvrdalj was built as a fort for defence from the Turks by the renowned poet from Hvar Petar Hektorović. It was erected by filling up the sea and one could enter it only over a bascule bridge. In the centre of Tvrdalj, Hektorović designed and built a Romanic park with a fishpond. Tvrdalj has numerous stone inscriptions, but the one saying ‘Omnium Conditori’ is the most significant one, since with it, Hektorović dedicated his Tvrdalj to God, the Creator of everything.
Petar Hektorović’s Tvrdalj is open for visitors from May to October.
