Korcula is an ancient fortified town.
The ramparts surrounding the city were built in the 13th century, and it was between the 14th and 15th centuries that the town took on its present form.
Korcula is a typical example of Dalmatian architecture at the time of the Republic of Venice.
Today it is possible to enjoy a tour of the fortress by following the fortifications and the ramparts, which connected the towers to each other.
You will enter the town via the Land Gate, on which you will see the coat of arms of Venice.
The Arboretum was established at the end of the 15th century. The exact date that its construction commenced is not known, but it already existed in around 1492.

In 1962, the Arboretum of Trsteno was recorded in the list of protected natural monuments as a monument of landscape architecture. The protected area covers approximately 255,000 square meters.
A small village of 2,000 inhabitants located 20 km south of Dubrovnik, Cavtat was founded by the Greeks. This makes it a historic place.
