St. Nicholas’ fortress

In order to protect the town from the maritime Turkish attacks and keep any invaders from coming ashore, the Venetians built St. Nicholas’ fortress during the 16th century. It is situated at the entrance to St. Anthony’s channel and is one of the strongest maritime fortification architecture on the Croatian Coast of the Adriatic Sea. Constructed from a sturdy blend of brick and stone, its triangular shape and 32 resident cannons made it a truly formidable form of defence.
