Photos and description

Fortress Stari grad and clearly illustrated in the story of piracy in these areas. This ancient fortress is located on top of Dinara mountains. For pirates the location of the fortress was very convenient, as it is the only point from which it was possible to monitor a large area of land and sea. From the top of the fortress you can look at the whole city, with views of the Islands of brač, Hvar, šolta and the canyon Cetina.

The main purpose of the fortress was to protect the city from enemies, but it was used as a shelter in case of siege of Omis. From the walls of the fortress was convenient to throw large boulders and thus to defend. Today we can be proud that the fortress was given the opportunity to preserve this beautiful Dalmatian town.

From city center you can reach the fortress by a well-groomed trail, not afraid to get lost. Also to the fortress can be reached on foot from omiš, through the village Basic and climb the fortress in about 20 minutes.
