Hvar island's towns include Stari Grad, Vrboksa and Sucuraj, but the Mediaeval Hvar town is the island's central focus, with elegant Venetian-style buildings, a long seaside promenade, rocky beaches and restaurants serving excellent seafood and exquisite local wine. A Venetian-built 16th-century fortress dominates and provides a panoramic view of Hvar, the harbour and the nearby Pakleni Islands. Concerts are regularly held in the lovely cloister of the 15th-century Franciscan monastery, and an adjacent church from the same period houses many religious works of art. Hvar offers many water sports for the adventuresome, including water-skiing, snorkelling, kite-boarding, windsurfing and banana boating.
Founded by the ancient Greeks, Stari Grad is the island's oldest town. Its 15th-century Dominican monastery features an interesting collection of archaeological artefacts. Surprisingly, this hidden-away little place is also the home of a painting by the renowned artist Tintoretto - The Interment of Christ. Vrboska isn't as old as Stari Grad, but it's one of the island's most charming villages and resembles a little corner of Venice. Apart from its quaint appearance, Vrboska features a fishing museum and Dalmatia's only fortified church, built ages ago to resist Turkish attacks.
