1000 inhabitants and you can reach it by an asphalt road that goes through olive groves and pine forests. Lumbarda stretches over several small coves and hills and is surrounded by vineyards. It was founded as a Greek settlement in the third century BC and Psefizma and Gnathia vases found in old graves are exhibited in the town museum as proof of the settlements age. Throughout history wealthy people of Korcula and landowners would build summer houses and castles in this settlement and some are still standing and inhabited today: kaštel (castle) Nobilo, Milina, Kršinić and others. On the hill in the old part of the Vela Glavica settlement is the parish church of St. Rok and other old chapels: St. Bartholomew (Sv. Bartul) and St. Peter (Sv. Petar). The inhabitants of Lumbarda have been, throughout history, mostly engaged in agriculture, cultivation of grapes, fishing and stonemasonry. Also, Lumbarda is the birthplace of several Croatian temporary artists, sculptors and painters.
Tourism has been developing in the recent 10 years and the offer is vast and diverse – from hotels, camps, apartments and other catering facilities to a small marina. Especially attractive to visitors are the sandy beaches that are a rarity on the Adriatic. For lovers of active vacations there are many hiking and bicycling routes and a beach volley court. Also you can try scuba diving in the diving centre MM Sub. Gastronomic offer is diverse and as is on the other parts of the island, but a special part of the offer is an exquisite sort of white wine Grk.
