Tor - Greek Tower

There are two towers situated on a mountain plateau south of Jelsa: the Greek-Illyrian Tower Tor from the IV ct. BC and the mediaeval town-fortress Galesnik.

GThe Greek Tower of Tor (230 m above sea level) dominates the picturesque valley from Stari Grad to Jelsa up to Vrboska as well as over the channels of Hvar and Split and the Makarska coastline. Around the Tor tower there are ruins of unfinished walls with several natural and man-made terraces, indicating that they had once been living quarters.
