Orebić

Orebić

Position

Orebic is the largest city on the Peljesac Peninsula, located to the west under Mount St. Elijah, crossing the Lumbarda Sea and the city of Korcula. Very accessible by sea, there are many ferry lines, it takes its name from the naval family "Orebic".

History

The Oberic family built the citadel and the old urban center in the 15th century. Not to be missed are the Church of Our Lady of the Angels and its Museum and the Rector's Palace, the Franciscan Monastery and its belvedere from which we enjoy, at 150 m altitude, a breathtaking view of the Pelsejac Canal as well as on the islands of Lastovo, Miljet and Korcula.

Formerly under the Republic of Ragusa, Orebic developed in the late 16th century thanks to its merchant seamen, who will make their city an important trading center in the 17th century. In 1865 the "Société maritime de Pelsejac" was created. It is a tradition that sailors operate the sirens of their boats before leaving the port and returning to ask for the protection of Our Lady of the Angels or to thank her for coming back.

We can taste them in charming taverns or to water a meal of fish or seafood at the famous restaurant "Karako". To your health and good appetite!
