Settlement of Lučica

Lučica is an important cultural and historical monument from the medieval times. It can be reached by an easy 10-minute walk from the settlement of Lastovo, passing through a rare habitat of coniferous forest and holm oak thicket with myrtle.
Lučica is the last preserved example of a Baroque fishing settlement in this part of Dalmatia. Fishing has always represented an important source of food and revenue for the local population. The inhabitants of Lastovo started building stone fishing houses in this narrow cove in the 17th century. These houses served them as shelter during storms and as storage for fishing tools, and they also cured fish there and repaired the boats.
