PresentationPresentation

General presentationGeneral information
Lastovo is the small capital of the island of Lastovo, already inhabited by Illyriens, is also one of the most charming villages of the islands, with its stone-built houses staged around a broad amphitheater.

Between the palm trees, one sees pointing the enormous cylindrical chimneys of the kitchens, which are the mark of Lastovo.

To see: the church Rebirth Saint-Like-and-St-Damien (15th-16th century), his charming small place and the Romance chapel Our-Lady-of-Rock, downwards. On the heights, the fortress of Glavica (kaštel), a Napoleonean building of 1808, replaced a castle dating from the republic of Dubrovnik. The panorama is sumptuous there.
