Molunat is a settlement located in the beautiful region of Konavle, at the far south of the Dalmatian coastline, only 18 nautical miles from Dubrovnik.
Its name derives from the Illyrian Greek word “molos”, which means “port”.
There are many traces of various archaeological sites on the sea floor, the mainland and on its walls and fortifications. These sites provided the evidence that Molunat has been inhabited since before recorded history, but most likely since Greek colonists first arrived in the area in the 7th century.
Molunat fell under the rule of the powerful, autonomous Republic of Ragusa in the 15th century, and the ruins of a former wall on the inland section of the Molunat peninsula can be seen to this day.
