Took its name from the ancient Greeks and the Cycladic island of Paros who arrived in 384BC and used the island's fertile coastal plains and fresh water springs to farm and settle. The island's sloping hills are covered in pine forests and in the agricultural areas lavender fields, vineyards, fruit orchards and olive groves. The climate offers mild winters and warm summers. Hvar's position in the middle of the Adriatic trade routes made the island an important centre for Adriatic commerce as well as throughout the entire Mediterranean.
The protected natural harbor of Hvar city, became a Venetian Empire center for trade and culture in the Adriatic. To protect against invaders, a large naval base was created and above the port an imposing fortress was built with walls encircling the town.
