The fortress Forte Mare represents one of the most significant fortification stand points in the town. It is considered that that facility is to be thanked for the construction of the medieval Herceg Novi. Even today on the south east side of the fortress a part of the defensive wall from that time is being preserved.
Forte Mare, Herceg Novi
Today’s size, shape and dimensions the fortress got during the Turkish reign, and from that period also come the cannons with defensive crowns. In the middle of the XVI century that fortification was named “Jaka kula” (STRONG TOWER) or “Kula Apasbase”. Today’s name fortress Forte Mare receives in XVIII century during the Venetian reign, while for the set of additional constructions and today’s appearance of the fortress we should thank the Austrians.
