I like caves. I like caves with history. I like historical caves with lots of history and a team of archeologists tinkering away in the depths. I liked Vela Spila. :-) To be honest, it’s not a big cave system, more a single large space,...More

To reach this archaeological site, follow the painted blue half moons along the waterfront and bear right into the hills above. A vigorous climb brings one to a cave inhabited for the last 20,000 years, basically since the peak of the ice age. Extremely early...More

An inrwsting cave, where you need to climb a little to reach it. Not so big but worth to visit to see and read some information about our civilization from the past.

From center Vela Luka, it takes about 20 minutes to walk up. Along the road, you have marvellous panorama of Vela Luka, and surroundings. The cave looks amazing with several large holes on the top.

We walked the 2,5 kilometre walk which was very peaceful but is all uphill. The caves are very small, 15 kuna each and nice to see, some good information, doesn't not take long.

We visited the place late April 2018. It was easy to find, but it was closed. I think it was because of the off-season. There was no information on when it opens, which was bit of a shame. We saw the place through the gate...More

Beautiful place to visit. Great view. If you like hiking, I suggest you head up there, especially on a beautiful sunny day.

This is a special place. Archaeological digs are still taking place, revealing different periods of history. A series of free audio clips can be accessed in English via your mobile, supplementing the information boards in the cave. We took the steps up and walked down...More
