Barone Fortress, Sibenik

#5 of 16 in Historic Sites in Sibenik
Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Perched hilltop, Barone Fortress represents a fortress built in 1646 to protect against Turkish attacks. Today, overgrown stonework is all that remains, but the view is second to none. Terra-cotta clay roofs dot the horizon, amid the lush greenery of this coastal town. Take in the view from the viewing terrace, or enjoy a picnic on the park benches. Along the footpath to the neighboring fortress watch for remnants of World War II bunkers.

  • It was very interesting. I saw that people were holding tablets and on the screen it was showing them a story or something like that. Unfortunately i don't know why, but I didn't receive one. But without it it was also very good. I have read every sign there was and it gave me a better view in why the fortress was build. I liked the view and there is even a place where you can drink something. It was interesting but it doesn't take long until you've seen everything. There is even a little playground where kids ( or me) can play !
  • This fortress was a really good history place where u can find out amazing facts about Šibenik's past and if you're hungry or thirsty you can order something from a restaurant standing on the fortress. There is also a really nice souvenir shop with an AC. The family ticket is 160kn. Believe me this is the experience you will never forget!
