Orebić info (Pelješac peninsula)
Orebić is located in the southwestern part of Pelješac on the coast of the Korčula Channel. It was named after the Orebić family – family of sea captains. Before that it was called Trstenica, which is now the name of the main beach in Orebić. In the past, maritime affairs had an important role in the development of Orebić. Sailors and ships from Pelješac had an important role in the fleet of Dubrovnik, even during the Austrian rule. In 1865 the Peljesac Shipping Society was founded in Orebić, and in 1875 Emperor Franz Joseph opened the shipyard, where, in addition to repairing ships, three sailing ships for long voyages were made. Orebić was reputed as the city with the largest number of captains in Croatia. As evidenced by 40 churches and chapels and 17 Catholic cemeteries, Orebić had a great Catholic tradition.
