Vrboska - Fortified church - 1

Vrboska is village on the northern side of the island Hvar. Settlement developed in the 15th century in the narrow bay that ends with a stream wich springs only about few hundred meters from the shore.

In 1512., during the uprising of the people and citizens against the island's nobility and their Venetian masters, known as a Hvar Rebellion, the village was devastated by the Venetian troops.

In 1571. the village was once again burned down, this time by the Turks under the leadership of Uluç Ali Reis.

In 1575., in order to protect the local population from possible future attacks, the designs were made by Venetian engineers, and the church of St. Mary was fortified and a bastion was added.
