Lopud Dubrovnik is an island covered with lush Mediterranean and subtropical vegetation. Lopud is located between Kolocep and Sipan. It is beautiful parks and gardens, sandy beaches (Sunj and the beach in the settlement Lopud) attract many visitors. In the past Lopud used to be the island of captains and sailors. A famous captain and ship-owner Miho Pracat was born there.
Many medieval churches (there were 30 ones in the 16th century), summer residences and monasteries have been preserved and therefore Lopud is one of the most beautifully arranged settlements of the wider Dubrovnik area. There are many valuable works of art in the Franciscan Monastery from 1483, as well as in the churches called “Maria of a Small Cave” and the “Our Lady of Sunj”.
