Orebic

Orebic or Orebici, as it is called by its inhabitants, takes its name from the XVIth century family of Peljesac captains. Definitely the most popular tourist resort on the Peljeska riviera. It lies on the South coast of the peninsula of Peljesac and at the East entrance to the Peljesac channel. It is two nautical miles from Korcula and can be reached by road from Dubrovnik and by the regular ferry and boat services from Korcula, as well as during the half-day riviera cruise excursion organized by the Korcula travel agencies. Exposed to the afternoon sunshine and facing South, Orebic offers a unique summer atmosphere, especially with its typical rows of captains houses, surrounded by the gardens of rich Mediterranean vegetation (pine, lemon, orange and almond trees) and lined next to the sea. Prehistoric menhirs and fortifications have been found in the vicinity of Orebic at Stine and Blace on the Vizanjica mountain. Remains of Roman Villae rustice have also been discovered, and there is an especially valuable Early Christian marble relief above the doors of the porch of the Baroque church.      

The Maritime Museum in Orebic, and the art collections of the Fiskovic and Zupa families bear testimony to the rich history of Orebic and especially its large role in the development of seafaring on the Adriatic and on the Mediterranean. Outstanding stone structures in Orebic are: The Seaman's Society Palace, the Seaman's Museum Palace and the Palace of the Court. All of these buildings have a characteristic courtyard with stone columns and are surrounded by gardens. The greatest attraction of Orebic and a frequent excursion point for the people from Orebic and tourists is the church of Gospa od Angela (Our Lady of the Angels). Tourists listen with interest to these traditional whistles, feeling that they are participating in the life of this region. The dangerously attractive sounds of the Sirens in the Korcula and Peljesac caves which greeted the adventurous sailors in the distant mythological past have been replaced by the peaceful sound of church bells. But the monastery and church also had another role. The reconnaissance patrols of the Dubrovnik Republic could easily see the ports and shelters of the Venetian galleys in the vicinity of the old town of Korcula. Many tourists, travel writers, musicians, painters, geographers, architects, historians, journalists and others brought here by professional curiosity or personal pleasure have written about this church complex and its surroundings. The inhabitants of Orebic, inheritors of the rich seaman tradition, pay great attention to sports on the sea, especially sailing and fishing. The seaman-sport society ·Peliska Jedra· attracts sailing enthusiasts who frequently win at domestic and international regattas. They were also the initiators of the constructing of the marina in Orebic which can harbor 200 various sports vessels. The "Pelisac" hunting society organizes hunting trips on wild high-quality game, especially moufflon brought from the Brioni Islands in 1970.
