Mogorjelo

At Mogorjelo, on the right bank of the Neretva River, south of Čapljina (36 km from Mostar), the well preserved remains of a spacious Roman Villa (3rd-5th century AD) are to be admired. Presumably, at the beginning of the 4th century AD, this area was covered with vast agricultural lands, a farm for the production of oil, wine and cereals, warehouses, places for the slaves, and the luxurious villa of the local noble owner.

The antique villa brings to mind, even if on a smaller scale and with a simpler structure, the Diocletian Palace at Split. Mogorjelo, thanks to its romantic setting, its architectural beauty, its rich, Mediterranean vegetation surrounding it, is truly an invaluable oasis. The Mostar Bus Company has daily bus services (from Monday to Saturday), leaving from the “Lira” stop in Mostar, which connect the town to Mogorjelo.
