Sipan is one of the biggest islands in the Elafiti archipelago
that consists of 13 islands. Sipan measures 16 square
kilometres and it’s about 17 kilometres away from
Dubrovnik. On this island there are 500 inhabitants.
The densest population have got the two coastal places
and the main place Sipanska Luka. The north-west-bay
should also be visited. Sipan was one of the islands
where a rector of the Ragusa republic was sent to. The
rectors’ palace built in 1450 is reminding at
that time even nowadays. If you go for a walk on the
other side of this island you’ll come across to
the fishing village Sundjuradj. There you’ll encounter
two wonderful summer residences of two noble families
who lived there in the 15th/16th century. If you continue
your stroll through the shrubs and the cypress forest,
you’ll find lots of dome-roofed old Catholic churches.
