It takes a little effort, but it’s worth it

The Ston Walls tour starts in Ston and finishes in Mali Ston. Firstly, we’ll walk the wall which encircles Ston, then we’ll clamber up the Big Wall which stretches across the hill, and finally we’ll fly downhill towards Mali Ston. Think you’re out of shape? Don’t worry – if we can do it, you surely can too! With this tour you’ll get in shape anyway.

Pentagon

Let’s first catch sight of the strongest fortress, Veliki Kaštio. It is a massive, rectangular fortress, with a scarp wall around it. Built in the southeast corner to protect the town against attack from the sea, it also housed an armoury. If we move a little bit away from the fortress, in the direction of the salt marshes, we’ll get a better perspective on the shape of the town. The wall runs around it forming… – a pentagon! The southern wall is its longest side…

We’ll cross the town’s patchwork of streets and start to climb the Ston Walls from the southwest corner. The western side of the pentagon is the shortest, stretching from the Arcimon bastion to the Minčeta Fortress. Here, it’s easy, it’s almost flat! But an uphill climb is not slow in coming. To reach the D-shaped tower, Stoviš, we have to climb. Let’s do it! As we gain height, the view opens up. Mamma mia, the salt marshes are like mirrors! That’s why the beauty is twice as dazzling here…

The Big Wall

The Big Wall stretches between Ston and Mali Ston with a length of 1,200 metres. It starts from the Kula nad vodom (literally, the Tower above the Water) and finishes with the mighty Koruna Fortress above Mali Ston. Your eyes will be bombarded with the panoramic views over the terracotta roofs of Ston, the salt marshes, the surrounding green hills, the long narrow Mali Ston Bay, and of course, the wooden baskets in the water on which oysters are farmed…

Trapezium

We’ll reach Mali Ston which lies on the northern slope of the hill, in the shape of a trapezium. Its shortest side is marked by the Koruna Fortress (literally, the crown). We’ll enter the little town from that side. You’ll see old houses pressed tightly against one another, the former arsenal, the tiny port, and a breakwater, similar to that one in Dubrovnik Old Port…

Our tour ends in Mali Ston. Jump for joy, and then jump at an opportunity to taste raw oysters, sprinkled with a few drops of lemon juice…

Along this exciting tour, you’ll learn about the history of the Pelješac Peninsula, the construction of the Ston Walls, local life and customs… And you’ll get plenty of exercise!
