Historical center Statute et leges civitatis et insulae Curzulae 5th century Ancient Christian Church on Majsan Island - the earliest proof of Christianity on Korcula. The 1000th Venetian Ducal Peter II Orseolo conquers Korčula and begins the period of Venetian rule which alternates with periods of authority of Croats, Croats, Warriors and Bosnian rulers until 1420.
1214. The "Statute of the Town and the Island of Korcula" similar to Dubrovnik - "Statute et leges civitatis et insulae Curzolae" - the law on life and management of the town and island of Korcula, and the legal foundations of autonomy of the Korčula commune. Curzola The historic center of the island was built on a small peninsula, narrowing the passage between the islands and the mainland to only 1270 meters. It was precisely the possibility of overseeing galaxies and sailing ships on the eastern coast of the Adriatic at this place was the cause of the post-fort fortress, which for various masters made this important service. In the form in which we see it today, it is evolving from the 13th century, since the foundation of the Statute, the arrival of the Zorzji princes, the centenary of Marco Polo. Walls and towers have become more and more powerful since then, and houses and churches are more and more comfortable. The city, at the peak of its power in the 16th century, was supposed to "receive up to 6,000 inhabitants". Kanavelić-Tower In 1871 the demolition of the walls and the tower began. Namely, in 1863, the Vienna Ministry of War Report reported to the municipal administration that its towers and walls were unnecessary, and that more costs of maintaining them would not be borne.
This council responded by demolishing most of the city wall, except the southern part, and demolishing three towers. Between the tower Zakrjan and Rampade (the modern name for the remains of the Door of All Saints from 1493) there were two more towers destroyed in the 19th century: the Parilo Tower and the Tower of the New Gate. The walls and foundations of the older tower - the Little Tower of All Saints - were destroyed in the Rampade itself, in 1879.
The East Street of 'Public Charity Street' is the only Korčula street without stairs, and is often called the Street of Thinkers.
Opposite to the west, it is the only Korčula private street. The town leader came from the square to his courtyard or down to the sea and the private connection to the city galleys at his disposal.
Loggia "Loža" from 1548 - for centuries the only building outside the city wall, and had a very diverse purpose - from the police and customs control station to the passenger waiting area and the tourist office.

Petra. The beautiful rosette, the crown, the top of the bell tower and the ciborium above the main altar in the Cathedral, are the works of Marko Andrijić. Hotel KORČULA Korcula Hotel was built in 1871 as a café at the time of the destruction of the walls and the tower, and since 1912 there is the first modern Korcula hotel.
