Porporela is the place where lovers finish their promenade through the City.
They begin their walk at Pile, continue along the main street Stradun, and finish it hand in hand on one of the benches by the Red Feral (warning light) at Porporela, or on the small wall which encompasses St Johns Fort which protected the southern part of the City against attacks from the sea
Hidden from inquisitive eyes it is a popular romantic spot for couples to enjoy amazing sunsets and sounds of waves splashing against the rocks. They begin their walk at Pile, continue along the main street Stradun, and finish it hand in hand on one of the benches by the Red Feral (warning light) at Porporela, or on the small wall which encompasses St Johns Fort which protected the southern part of the City against attacks from the sea.
Love-Locks on Boninovo
It’s colloquially known as “The Love-Locks Fence” because its chain-link sides have been festooned with hundreds of padlocks, symbolizing couples’ enduring passion. These love-locks have been engraved with initials, names and/or dates, and sometimes flourished with keepsakes and ribbons.
Many lovers take this business seriously, clamping with intent and throwing their lock-keys in the sea; some less romantic souls, though, have used combination locks, hedging their bets that some other love might come along.
While there are may “Love-Lock” bridges and fences all over Europe we dare to say that only a few have such a nice view.
Leisurely Brunch at City cafe
This year why not forgo a fancy dinner reservations on Valentine's Day and enjoy a leisurely brunch on the terrace of the city café? Maybe order some of the famous Ston’s aphrodisiac oysters?
With over a 100-year old tradition, this remains a prime terrace in the Old Town you to sip your morning coffee watching the city crowds ebb and flow the main street.
Wait for the moment of full hour when City Belltower’s Jacquemarts (bellstrikers), popularly known as Maro and Baro, strike their hammers announcing the time and sending hundreds of pigeons soaring in the air.
