Sveti Stefan Island

A fortified island village connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, Sveti Stefan is one of the one of the most exclusive resorts on the Mediterranean. It is the result of a modern refurbishment of the stone houses on the island, built more than five centuries ago for the population of the nearby villages who sought shelter from the attacks of pirates and the Turks.

According to oral tradition, the Pastrovici tribe used the spoils taken from Turkish galleons to fortify the island in 1442, building 12 houses, one for each family in the Pastovici area. For nearly 300 years, it had been a trade and transport centre for the Pastrovici and the seat of the Bankada – the tribal court of the Pastrovici. The village was named after the church located on the highest point of the island, dedicated to St Stefan.
