Lumbarda holiday - Lumbarda holiday apartments and houses


Lumbarda is a village and harbour in the easternmost part of the island of Korcula, between the coves of Przina and Bili Zal, 6 km southeast of the town of Korcula. East of the village is the Lumbarda field, consisting of reddish and yellowish soils (Pleistocene sand), which offer excellent conditions for viticulture (most famous wine Grk). Economy is based on farming, fishing, processing of stone and tourism. Underwater fishing is possible from Bili Zal to Vrbovica. Lumbarda is located on the regional road, which connects Lumbarda with the town of Korcula. Marina has 170 berths in the sea and 40 places on the land.

Lumbarda is not only famous for its interesting historical heritage but also for its traditional culture. Folk songs, customs and dances have been cherished for ages. An important event during the carnival is the "picking of oranges", when the entire village, with dances and songs, pays tribute to local beauties and to the head of the village. Another interesting feast is St.Roch's Day (Rocco's Day) on the 16th of August. Occasional entertainment and cultural programs are organized during the tourist season.

Several fragments of a Greek inscription from the 4th century BC, carved in stone (today kept at the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb), as well as the ruins of the mediaeval church of St.John, have been found on the Koludrt hill, north of the village. The Greek inscription is a psephism (assembly resolution) about the distribution of land to the inhabitants of the newly established colony. Apart from the Greek names, the list of colonists includes also some Illyrian names. Some other Greek artefacts have also been found in the area around Lumbarda (pottery, coins). Lumbarda features the mediaeval parish church of St.Roch (Rocco) (reconstructed in 1561 and 1886), several summer mansions of the former patricians of Korcula (erected from the 15th c. onward), the birth-houses of the sculptors Frano Krsinic (1897-1982) and Ivan Lozica (1910-1943, with a memorial plaque).
