Stari Grad (Pharos) is the oldest town in Croatia. The same year - 384 BC when Greek philosopher Aristotel was born in Trakia, the Greeks from the island of Paros in Agean sea have settled the town on the island of Hvar, and named it Pharos. The town is situated in a landscape where the blue of the deep bay touches the green of the wide a famous field of Pharos, with vineyards and olive-groves. The fields used to provide sustenance and the bay provided protection. Today, both the fields and the bay add an attractive quality to the island, in which the modern vacation sights have become intertwined with the antiquities of the town and of the island.
