Kašćel viewpoint

At Glavica above the town of Lastovo, where the prehistoric fortress once stood, the Dubrovnik government erected a castle that was frequently repaired. It contained houses, a well, and a small chapel devoted to St. John. At the site of this Dubrovnik castle, which was destroyed during the Lastovo uprising, a new one was erected in 1808, when the French occupied the island.

After remodelling, their fortress is still used as a meteorological station today. It takes 10 minutes to walk to the scenic trail from the centre of Lastovo. It provides a view of the coves of Lučica and Mihajla, the Lastovo canal and the island of Korčula.
