Visit Hvar’s cathedral which together with Bishop’s palace, encloses the east side of the biggest square in Dalmatia - Hvar’s Pjaca (St. Stephen’s sq.), dedicated to St. Stephen, the Pope and martyr, patron of dioceses and Hvar town and Fortica, built above old city in the mid 16th century. Its architecture and military history will thrill you as much as the view of the city of Hvar and surrounding islands. See Arsenal,one of the first municipal theatres in Europe, founded in 1612., erected on the ancient Arsenal (a space used for repairing of galleons, and a storage of various seafaring tools). The theatre’s exterior is mostly preserved in its original form. Do not miss The Franciscan monastery - built in 15th century as a retreat for sailors. Within the monastery there are the artifacts exhibited in the monastery collection which is also the oldest on the island. It consists of paintings, manuscripts, old coins and incunabula. And finally, Pakleni otoci, the oldest and most famous Hvar’s resort, spacious lagoon with shallow and sandy beach, surrounded by the thick, pine forest, fragrant heather and rosemary bushes and various, exotic plants.
