The myriad of little streets of these towns, hold the history or the land. This relativity unspoilt Mediterranean isle has seen many much in its past. It spent many years as a Yugoslavian military base, where foreign visitors were not allowed until 1989. Many of its in habitants have long family ties with the island, going back generations.
