Greek watchtower Maslinovik, Island of Hvar, Croatia
The watchtower is located on a hill on the north side of the Stari Grad Plain. It was built in the 4th century BC by the ancient Greek settlers as an observatory near Pharos (today’s Stari Grad). Together with a second watchtower Tor over Jelsa, it formed a defence system of the Greek colony of Pharos. Presently, only the lower segments are preserved. Since 2008 the Stari Grad Plain has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List along with Stari Grad’s old town centre.
