What awaits you
An atmospheric place where the spirit of history is alive The fortress is not only located on the hill of Herceg Novi, but is also far, by local standards, from the center. There are always few people here, and the ruins of historical buildings, untouched by restorers and shrouded in ivy, are ideal scenery for photo shoots. Plus, there is no better place in town to watch the sunset than Spagnola. And it is from here that one of the best panoramas of the city, the bay and its surroundings opens
Walk with a professional photographer The excursion that I propose cannot be called a full-fledged photo session, but rather a small trip with a local resident to an interesting object, which is problematic for beginners to get to. But since I am a photographer, you will not be left without high-quality pictures! So, we will meet in the Old Town of Herceg Novi and go on foot to the fortress - the road will take about 40 minutes. And along the way, if necessary, we will stop by a local bakery or shop to buy water and something for a snack
General idea of the fortress I do not promise a deep immersion in the history of the building, but I will definitely tell you in general terms what makes the monument interesting. For example, you will learn about the founding of the fortress in the 16th century by the Spaniards, the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci, the strategic importance of the complex and its successful autonomous structure. And you will also hear the legend about the underground passages connecting several fortifications of the city.
- The excursion requires a little stamina, because the fortress is located on a hill (not suitable for travelers with children under 7 years old).
- In the hot season, the ascent is carried out either in the morning (from 7:00 to 10:00) or in the evening (from 17:00 to 20:00).
- I will send you the pictures (up to 10 frames) a few days after the excursion.
