As one of the most important prehistoric cave dwellings in the Mediterranean and Europe, Vela Spila has continuously been occupied since the last ice age, twenty thousand years ago.
Located in Korčula above the town of Vela Luka, the immense cave gives you a clear indication of how the Mesolithic and Neolithic people lived. Although the eventuality of the peoples is unknown, the caves remain an integral part of the island's history and continue to attract tourists throughout the year.
The cave is fascinating. It is incredible to stand in a place that has been inhabited by humans for thousands of years.
Visitors can follow the clear hiking trails or take the paved roads that lead up to the magnificent cave. At the top of a hill, prepare to be astonished at the beautiful, panoramic views of Vela Luka below before heading in to see the cave itself.
