This is a little town we passed on the way to Dubrovnik by bus. They harvest sea salt here, but the thing that got my curiosity was the long wall that was built all along the hills and around the town/castle.
Following info given by fellow VT
In 1333 the Republic of Dubrovnik took the power over Peljesac peninsula and built two towns - Veliki Ston (Big Ston) and Mali Ston (Small Ston). They were connected with a
4,5 long walls in order to protect the peninsula from Turkish invaders from the
mainland. Actually, the salt plains in Ston were very important source of income for
Dubrovnik - they traded salt to Ottomans in Bosnia.
