Hvar old town

Interesting
Stari Grad means "old town". Founded in 384 BC by the Greeks, nowadays it is a maze of flower-covered steps, carved balconies, vaulted passages and walled gardens (particularly the southern side). Make sure you visitTvrdalj , the house of the 16C poet Petar Hektorovic and its superb garden. TheDominican monastery built in the 15C and 16C is also well worth a look, as isSt John's chapel (Sv. Ivana), built in the 12C on the site of an ancient temple (note the 6C mosaics).
