    Ston - It's not too big

    The walls around Ston marked the northern edge of th eDubrovnik Republic. Mali Ston nearby has more restaurants and clearly a busier but less picturesqu place. We stopped off on the way to exploring parts of the Peljeclac Penninsula

    Lovrijenac, Dubrovnik, Croatia

    To the west of Dubrovnik, on an bluff overlooking the sea, is the independent fortress of Lovrijenac - independent because it is not connected to the city walls like the other fortress to the east known as Revelin.

    It is not known when Lovrijenac was built, but it is fairly certain that it had been completed by the very early 1300s.

    Above the entrance of this impressive fortress are the words "Non bene pro toto libertas venditur auro".

    Ok, you Latin scholars, what does this mean?

    Lovrjenac Fort

    From the Pile gate of the old city, it's just a short walk to the Lovrjenac Fort. This is a fine monument and a wonderful place to take photographs of the whole city of Dubrovnik. It's pretty deserted, being off the tourist trail, but worth a stop. There is a small admission fee.

    A trip around the walls of Ston - great for a couple of hours,. A handful of restaurants none of which were particularly busy when we visited. A relaxing time.
