Photographer's Note

The city of Hvar, full of history, has many old buildings, most of them from the Venetian era.

Masters of the island of Hvar, the Venetians have transferred the capital from Stari Grad to Hvar.
Hvar (pronounced "Far" with the local accent) takes its name from its ancient name "Pharos", given at the time of ancient Greece.

These windows overlook the plaza of the cathedral, the largest square in Dalmatia.
