Fortress Old Town – Sinj

Klajo

 

Remnants of the old fortress, that the people
of Sinj simply call the Town, have been faithful to watch over Sinj even today,
after the passage of centuries. It harboured the people and soldiers during
Turkish invasions, guarded and protected the weak, resisted invaders. In the
centre of the fortress there was St Michael’s church in which, on the altar of
St Barbara, the Franciscans from Rama laid the precious and miraculous image of
the Mother of Mercy. In 1699, through the advocacy of Father Pavao Vučković, in
the town at the foot of the old fortress the building of St Mary’s church
began. The church was completed in 1712.
