Lastovo is a fairytale oasis of peace, where time has stood still behind the wooden shutters and where the Lastovo chimneys, the island’s landmark, tell stories from ancient times. The island has proudly been preserving its customs, traditions and folklore over the centuries. The largest settlement on the island is Lastovo that hides several medieval churches in its stone beauty. The oldest one is the parish Church of St. Cosmas and Damian from the 15th century. Lastovo houses, which harmoniously line the alleys and squares, are adorned with uniquely decorated chimneys (fumari) and original stone facades in Dalmatian style. Of the various customs that the inhabitants of Lastovo preserved, the most interesting is the Lastovo Carnival, which is held every year in memory of the victory over Moorish pirates.
