Great cave

Northeast of Vela Luka, on the hillside of Pinski rat, there is an important archaeological site – the Great cave. As evidenced by the cave, this area has been inhabited from the prehistoric times to the present. Apart from the artefacts from the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age, items from the Greek, Roman and Byzantine period were found. Part of the findings is kept in the museum located in the centre of Vela Luka. There is a 2,5 kilometre-long road leading to the cave, as well as a kilometre-long walking trail going up the hill of Pinski rat. The cave is facing south, offering a magnificent view of the bay and the surrounding islands. The width of this 4 metre-high cave entrance ranges from 1 to 10 metres.

Vela špilja (Big cave) is located 3km away from the center of Vela Luka and you have to climb a hill to get to it.


If you are driving with a car show this translation to the taxi driver:
Molim Vas da me odvezete do Vela špilje koja se nalazi 3km od centra Vela Luke, morate se popeti na brdo da bi došli do nje.

You must also show to the taxi driver that he must turn on the taximeter:
Molim Vas uključite taksimetar. Hvala!


Additional translation:
Please can you tell me how to find this sight:
Molim Vas da me uputite prema Veloj špilji koja se nalazi 3km od centra Vela Luke, morate se popeti na brdo da bi došli do nje.
