What to see near the port of Stari Grad
Except for the plain (listed as a World Heritage Site as it has remained unchanged since the 4th century BC ), Stari Grad does not have much to offer from a historical-artistic point of view.
The most significant monument of the town is certainly Ettoreo palace (kaštel Tvrdalj in Croatian), fortified residence of the Renaissance poet Pietro Ettoreo, author of a poem dedicated to fishing and talking with fishermen. The villa is characterized by a fish pond, a garden and the Latin writings visible in various rooms of the building. Behind the palace is the Muzej Staroga Grada, the museum of the Old Town.
Other notable buildings are the church of San Rocco (patron saint of Stari Grad), the church of Santo Stefano, the church of San Giovanni, the church of San Nicola and the Dominican monastery of San Pietro Martire. Another very popular place of worship is that of the White Cross, which stands on the hill of Glavica, about 1 km from the center of Stari Grad.
