Hvar town special tour

Take the opportunity to explore the most notable, culturally rich and happening spots in Hvar town. Discover the historical legacy of Hvar step by step and listen to the stories of the town citadel, the medieval walls, the monasteries and the palaces. Visit the Benedictine nuns who live in a secluded convent and whose existence is only visible to the public through their handmade agava lace patterns, unique works of art. A stroll through Hvar’s picturesque streets reveals centuries of Dalmatian architecture.

Tour description: Our half day tour starts with a car transfer to Hvar’s Fortica castle, which is the best place for the most amazing view of the entire city and island archipelago. After learning more about the castle and its history we will begin our gentle stroll down to the city center through lush pine woods until we reach the old part of the town called Groda. At Groda we will stop at Benedictine nunnery museum where you will see their signature works of art: agava pattern laces, which are protected by UNESCO as the cultural heritage. Afterwards we will discover the city square, the Arsenal, the Theatre, the Cathedral and finish our tour with espresso at Cafe Pjaca.
