Climb to the top of , which offers bird's-eye views of the fjord and the Old Town from the height of 1,200 m (3937 ft). Together with the Old Town and its natural surroundings, the fortifications are listed as a World Heritage Site. The Illyrians, Byzantines, Venetians, and Austrians built the fortress between the ninth and 19th centuries. Take the main entrance near the River Gate and ask for a descriptive brochure identifying various towers, citadels, gates, bastions, forts, cisterns, and churches along the way. Rest on a stone seat in front of the Church of Our Lady of Remedy. Walk carefully, as the stairs are unstable in places, and be sure to take a bottle of water with you.

Castle Of San Giovanni Reviews
Recommended by our local guide, this was one really nice short hiking destination. Do not forget to bring a bottle of water with you! more »
This climb is definitely worth the view! There are many stops on the way up to rest if needed! Make sure once at the top to look over the other side! It’s an accomplishment you won’t want to miss!! more »
The Place is fantastic, obviously it's a tourist area living mostly for the summer time but I would love to have someone cleaning the path at least a couple of times during the day! Also to start your hike it costs 8 euros per person, I'd expect someone that removes the trash. The view on top is wonderful and fulfilling! Loved it.
I have been here couple of times and there is something really special about this place... it is the view! It feels like you are touching the sky!!! For more I suggest you to put it on your “must to” list... you will never regret!
