FORTRESS AND TOWN, TOWN AND FORTRESS
One of the water tanks takes you to the center of the timeless battle between good and evil, represented in the Christian tradition by the victory of St. Michael over the dragon. The winged archangel was probably patron saint of the town from the very beginning. The second water tank is essentially a time machine that tells the story of the creation and expansion of Šibenik, from the hill dedicated to St Michael to the shore. The story takes us to the darkest period in towns history - 17th century and the the golden age of the Renaissance.
