About us
Construction of the walls of Ston began in 1333, when the residents of Dubrovnik began to construct a defensive system for their city. It lasted until the 16th century. In addition to the walls, this magnificent structure consists of three fortresses, 41 towers, seven bastions, four bulwarks, and a canal filled with water on the western, southern, and eastern sides of Ston. This defensive wall is one of the largest medieval fortification/urban undertakings, with an original length of seven kilometers. The walls connect Ston and Mali Ston. These two urban centers are the product of a preconceived plan that respected a square layout of regular residential blocks and streets. The plan was adopted by the Dubrovnik government in 1335 and that decision included Ston in the category of ideal cities of Europe. This defensive structure was formed over four centuries because of adaptations to the terrain and the development of weapons. Its defensive role lasted until the19th century, but it is a construction, monumental, and cultural resource for all time.
