History

Stari Grad (Pharia) is the oldest settlement on the island, and was founded by Greeks from the island Paros in the Aegean around 385 BC. In 219 BC, the Roman consuls Paulus and Marcus Livius defeated the locals, who were henceforth subservient to Rome. In the 7th century, after the fall of Solin (Salona), the capital of the province of Dalmatia, it seems that its people sought refuge in Pharia, as according to the chronicler Tomas the Archdeacon who wrote in his History of the Salona Diocese, that Salona's inhabitants had fled to the nearby islands. In the 10th century, the town was part of the Neretva Principality – Pagania. The 12th century saw the formation of the first island noble families and in 1147 the first Hvar Diocese. In 1278, the townspeople as well as the islanders at large, being tired of the piracy and attacks by the people of Omiš (a coastal town south of Split), authorised their bishop Šimun to request the protection of the Venetian Republic. In a contract with Venice, they undertook to build a new town on the site of the present-day Hvar, the site of the ancient settlement of Lisina (Liesna, Lesina). Since then, the original settlement was known as Starigrad or Old Town (Cittavechia). In 1813, Stari Grad became part of the Dalmatian Kingdom, which was in itself part of the larger political body of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
