There are more than 30 churches and chapels on the island, some of them originating from ancient times. The very name Lastovo came from ancient times too, first known as Ladesta from the early IV century B.C. The Romans named it Augusta Insula, meaning The Emperor's Island. Later the name was changed into Ladeston and finally Lastovo.

The Lastovo island has Mediterranean climate with mild and humid winters and warm, dry and lengthy sunny summers.

The Lastovo archipelago was declared a Nature Park in 2006. Among all the beautiful bays, Skrivena Luka bay with apartments Klara must be mentioned. The other interesting places are Lastovo village, Ubli, Pasadur, Zaklopatica bay, Lučica and Saint Mihovil.

 

Amidst the string of silver islands, over the Adriatic sea, stands the wooded Lastovo, amazingly beautiful island which from the outside seems a forgotten companion of history, while there, in the shadow of high olive-trees, life has flourished since the pre-Hellenic times.

Bernard Shaw
