Korcula

The legendary birthplace of Marco Polo is a world of its own. Splendid 19th century staircase and through majestic 14thC Revelin Tower. The 15thC stone walls surround the entire city where there is a remarkable ensemble of churches, museums, stone carvings, courtyards and cobbled alleys. St. Mark's Cathedral was built from Korcula limestone and its bell tier and ornate ci proud above the main alter are by Marko Andrijic, famous Croatian sculptor. Many of the prominent buildings display coats of arms of notable families, including legendary explorer Marco Polo's house.
