Fortress Besac is located not far from Skadar lake on a small hill, near town Virpazar in Bar town-council.
Fortress Besac is one of the oldest military fortification preserved at the territory of the modern Montenegro. It was built during the times of the Ottoman Empire at the second half of XX century. However some towers behind the fortress wall trace history to medieval Zeta State. In ancient times the fortress bordered Slavic and Turkish territory. That's why today it presents a significant historical value not only for Montenegro, but also for the whole Balkan peninsular.
Today, the fortress is half destroyed, although it is planned to build tourist military memorial complex. It can be approached by gravel-road from auto road Podgorica-Bar.
