About the Paklarić Fort
An archeological exploration of Paklarić was carried in 2001. This included the defensive wall in the east part of the plateau, and a small amount of prehistoric ceramic and a large amount of medieval ceramic were discovered.
The said defensive wall is believed to have been built in the late Middle Age (14th-16th century) on and from the remains of a prehistoric stone wall fortification.
A large amount of animal bones, shells and fragments of clay tableware was discovered on the west edge of the plateau. Significant findings also include three silver coins of Venetian dukes.
This defensive facility is also believed to have been built in the late Middle Age, supervising the important communication from the sea through Paklenica to Lika and back.
