FORTRESS FORTICA (STARI GRAD)
The fortress Fortica is located at the top of Dinara Mountain.
The first part of the fortress Fortica was built at the begining of the 14th century ,and it was completed in the mid-15th century.
Fortress Fortica was built primarily for defending the city from the enemy.
It was very important for piracy – it is a site of strategic importance with a broad view on all movements across the middle Poljica as well as over the navigation in the sea channel between Split and Makarska.
From the fortress we have a beautiful view of the entire city, the canyon of the river Cetina, Brač Channel, islands of Brač, Hvar, Šolta and most of Poljica.
In the event that Omiš was besieged, from the fortress there would have been thrown large boulders that would have destroyed the entire city and therefore the enemy .
Today, we are proud and happy that this did not happen and that we can enjoy the delights of this beautiful Dalmatian town.
