St. Michael's fortress is situated on a hill, 70 m above sea level. White trimmed stone was used for its construction, which lasted from the 15th up to the 17th century.

It covers the surface of about 2600 m2. During archaeological excavations, architectural remains and plenty of culture-historical artefacts from the times of the Venetian rule were found, but also the rests of the material culture from the Iron Age, which proves the fact that the Croats built the fortress on the site of an ancient Illyrian town.
