Šibenik – A walking path through the Channel of St. Ante

Šibenik – A walking path through the Channel of St. Ante
The Channel of St. Ante in Šibenik, one of the most beautiful parts of the Adriatic coast and one of the most glamorous sea entrances into the town, will finally become available to citizens and tourists. The left side of the Channel of St. Ante has been fenced off by barbed wire and forbidden to the public for decades. Rarely had anyone set foot on this part of the channel but thanks to the project of the Public institution for regulation of protected natural heritage of the Šibenik-Knin county, this natural pearl of Šibenik will finally be connected to the town by a walking path. The pathway will stretch from Šibenik`s Mandalina quarter along the whole channel and citizens and tourists will be able to walk or ride to the Venetian fort of St. Nikola, a highest category protected monument. The pathway will also enable the access to sea passages¬/tunnels which lead to the cave where the Church of St. Ante from the middle ages is located.

Also included in this 1.4 million euro worth project is the building of the 6.5 km long walking path, the building of two belvederes, a parking lot, the renewal of the pier next to the cave of St. Ante and the horticultural landscaping of the site. Three quarters of the project will be financed from EU funds, while the remaining part will be secured by the local authorities. The channel of St. Ante, which includes the area from the Šibenik bridge to the end of the channel and the fort of St. Nikola, is a little over 2000 meters in length. The whole site was pronounced a protected landscape in 1974.
