Medieval walls, narrow lanes, terracotta-roofed houses – it’s no wonder the town of Korcula has been nicknamed Little Dubrovnik. A tangle of little alleyways branches off of the main street, which zig-zags its way through the town. The main street’s crooked layout helps to block the chilly sea breezes in winter, while the side streets have been laid out to counteract the heat of the midday sun. We’ll start off at the town walls, which date back to the 14th century, before making our way through the stone-paved streets. We’ll pass by the turreted Rector’s Palace, and brush up on Korcula’s history at the town museum, housed in a 16th-century mansion. We’ll also tick off the Gothic-Renaissance cathedral and the Bishop’s Treasury next door to it, set inside the 14th-century Abbey Palace.
