Stari Grad has a long history - the first documented traces were found in 384 B.C. when settlers from the Greek island of Paros founded the polis or city-state of Faros. Stari Grad's most famous ancient habitant is general Demetrius, a short-term governor of the Illyrian state and an associate of powerful Hannibal from Cartagena. After Demetrius' failure in 219 B.C., the town became dependent on Rome and remained so until late antiquity. There are numerous monuments that are evidence of the town's turbulent history which can be seen in numerous points during a walk through the old city center as well as in the museums.
