Sokol kula - Sokol fort


This fort found itself under Dubrovnik rule in 1420 and was immediately submitted to further construction – rebuilding of certain parts, strengthening of others, arming and general maintenance.

This fort survived unscathed the big earthquake of 1667.

It is not mentioned in the 1672 archives as a military complex and it was probably abandoned around that time. As was customary in the region, the locals used the stones of the fort to build their homes and smaller walls, so Fort Sokol was heavily deconstructed.

The ruins of the fort have been placed under state protection and are maintained in their present condition.

We offer the visit of this fort as a part of our half day trip to Konavle.

Get to know not only the history but also some legends connecting with this area and its main protection fort Sokol kula :).
