Korcula

The walled medieval town of Korčula, on the island of the same name – one of my favourite spots on the Croatian Adriatic, frequently touted as the birthplace of the Venetian traveller Marco Polo (which it may, or may not, have been, though he was certainly captured by the Genoese in a naval battle not far from here).
