History sightseeing


History of Peljesac starts in ancient times. Very recently, in a cave on St. Ilija mountain in vicinity of Orebic, a sacrifice place from ancient Greek time was discovered. This discovery included a valuable collection of Greek ceramics. On surrounding hills, there are visible ancient Illiric towns and graveyards.

Through the mid centuries, Peljesac was part of Dubrovnik Republic. Some extraordinary monuments date from that time. An ancient town of Ston with its stone walls (the longest in Europe), and a monastery above Orebic ought to be explored.

Orebic was founded in XVIth century by seamen settlers. Crossing over all oceans and sees, they brought home various artifacts and plants. Even today, when walking through Orebic, one can feel their spirits.

Just across the channel in front of Orebic, ancient town of Korcula is situated. Korcula is well known as home town of Marco Polo, a famous mid-evil world traveler. 

Dubrovnik itself is just 2 hrs. drive by car from Orebic, so it is excellent for one-day trip.
