It's a short trek from any part of Stari Grad to Glavice -- a short walk up paved streets from the water and then a short trek (not even 500m) on a rock path to the top. You're rewarded with a 360 degree view of...More

Google sent us on the wrong path and we ended up in the middle of nowhere. There is though a clear path which we only found on our way down. Great place for the sunset

Glavica Hill offers a beautiful view of the Stari Frad Plain and town. It has a nice white cross at the top. If you want to hike in Stari Grad this is a nice spot to do so.

You would think a small cross and not a lot else on a hilltop are scarcely worth a detour. But the views from this vantage point are quite stunning, you can see all the way across Starigrad Harbour and across the island to Brac. The...More

A pleasant 20 min walk to the top from Stari Grad town easily signposted but make sure you have suitable footwear as the path is quite stoney in places. Prettu summit with a chapel and seating

Only 15 minutes from main road and you can see Brac island, sunset, Stari Grad fields... There are benches but you should bring your water and flashlight if you going to see sunset.
