Orebic

Orebic is located 8 km from Viganj. It lies beneath the mountain St. Elijah which has the highest peak on Peljesac peninsula. Orebic is the largest settlement on Peljesac and tourist center of the peninsula.

 

Orebic is known for its long maritime tradition. A large part of that heritage you can see in the Maritime Museum in Orebic. On the hill above the town lies the Franciscan monastery with a museum, the old captain's cemetery and belvedere that offers a breathtaking view of the Peljesac channel and numerous islands.
