Fortress and Old Town – Počitelj

In the valley of Neretva, Počitelj was the mainstay in the defence against the Ottomans. The fortress was built by King Tvrtko in 1383 and it had a strategic role in controlling the passage to the sea through the Neretva valley.

Today, the historical town of Počitelj, built under the fortress, has an oriental style and as such is completely in the function of tourism and cultural events. The town is only 3 km away from Čapljina.
