Fortress Starigrad (Fortica), Omis

4.8
Starigrad Fortress is a fortress located above town of Omiš in Split-Dalmatia county, in Dalmatia, Croatia.
The fortress was built in the 15th century, primarily for defense against Turks. Its walls follow the line of the mountain.
Had the city been taken, all of the people were to retreat to the safety of Fortica; from there they would throw down rocks, destroying the enemy forces below and the city as well. This plan never had to be implemented.
