New Mast on Forteca Korcula
Forteca is the English tower Fort Wellington, built in 1813 at the top of the hill above Korcula Old Town.
Due to it’s historic value, it was unreasonable to expected that a mobile phone mast and arials can be erected on top of the tower.
However, some people had a different idea and a mast and aerials have been there for years.
Not so long ago, a new mast appeared on the top of the hill, so at the moment, we have two masts on the hill. Great.
All aerials from the top of the Forteca Tower are allegedly being relocated at the newly built mast that is just a few meters away from the tower (?!)
The summit of the Forteca Hill offers a beautiful view of the Korcula Old town, the Skoji Arhipelago and the Peljesac Peninsula. This is why we expected the local authorities to oppose the idea of keeping the Forteca Hill under the mast’s occupation and to give it back to walkers, visitors and tourists.
It is very sad to see another wrong decision by the local authorities.
