Starigrad Fortress is a 15th-century fortress located near Omiš in Split-Dalmatia county, in Dalmatia, Croatia. The fortress or Fortica was built during the Croatian–Ottoman wars as a primary defence against the Ottoman Empire. The precipitous fortification is sited on a 262 m (860 ft) ridge above the town Omiš. In the event of an attack, its purpose was to provide refuge for local people and be a stronghold where they could retreat to and resist the Turks. Photo credits: Wikipedia/Silverije
