St. Nichola’s Fortress
St. Nicholas fortress is situated at the entrance to St. Anthony’s channel, and it was constructed during the 16th century in order to protect the town from the Turkish attacks from the sea. It was built after the plans of the Venetian military architect Michelle Sammichelli. The White stone was used for building the lower parts of the fortress and red stone for the upper parts. St. Nicholas’ fortress is one of the strongest maritime fortification architecture on the Croatian Coast of the Adriatic Sea.
St. Michael Fortress
One of the first things that visitors see when entering Šibenik by road is the silhouette of St Michael’s Fortress, which crowns the pyramidal hill above Šibenik’s Old Town. Running downhill from the fortress towards the seafront is a crenelated set of double walls built in the 15th century to provide access to the sea. With recent extensive reconstruction, it has become a great summer stage for various cultural and music events.
