Stari Grad sits at the bottom of a wide bay in the northwest of the island of Hvar. Almost two and a half thousand years ago, it was colonized by the Greeks, from which time country villas have been scattered around the Stari Grad field. Geometrical patterns of vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields have been divided by dry stone walls into rectangles known as chora. The Stari Grad field is a well-preserved example of agriculture as practiced in antiquity. As such, it was protected by UNESCO and is included in its world heritage list. Alongside architectural diversity of its plazas and alleys, Stari Grad will show you the blue and green scenery of the authentic Mediterranean.
