Fortress of Petar Hektorović (1487. – 1572.), with dovecot and fishpond within is the most famous building in Stari Grad
This renaissance poet has been building it for all of his long life, and for him it was as much important as it was his own poetry. In this building he has achieved his idea of microcosmos – small isolated world, where all living godly creatures have their space for living – fish, birds, plants and people (him, his friends, his holly wife, travelers, poor people).
