Cres

Cres is situated in the northwest part of a wide sheltered bay. The largest town on the island is characterized by closely built houses and a large number of monuments dating from ancient times to the present day. There is a lot to see here: a small medieval port, Gothic and Renaissance churches, monasteries, palaces, remains of a fort, etc. At the turn of the century Cres had two hotels and around 1960s the town burgeoned into a popular tourist destination.

Venetian Tower, Cres
The round Venetian Tower from the15th century is located at the top of the Venetian defence system. Only this tower was preserved out of four towers and city walls that had encompassed the city. It is placed in the northwest of the city.

Remnants of city walls, Cres
This is what is remained from the city walls: cylindrical tower in the north of the city and three Renaissance city gates built in the 16th century: the south gate – small city gate Bragadina (1581), north city gate Marcela (1588.) and main city gate St Nicholas in the main square. Cres was walled already in the Middle Ages; these walls were renovated by Venetians and new ones were built in the 16th century; however, these walls were mostly demolished in the 19th century. People in Cres lived solely inside the city walls until the end of the Venetian era (the end of the 18th century) and during that time only two convents were built outside this area.

Municipal Loggia, Cres
The Municipal Loggia from the 15th century with the pillory is placed in the main city square – Frane Petrić square – and in the medieval harbour – Mandrač. The Loggia has always been the hub of the city and is mostly frequented in the forenoon when it becomes a market.
