Fortica fortress
It was built in 1613, after the Turks had burned and looted Sućuraj three times. During the Venetian-Turkish wars, Sućuraj was located on the triple border of three states: the Republic of Venice (which included the island of Hvar at the time), the Ottoman Empire (the Makarska coast) and the Republic of Dubrovnik (Pelješac peninsula). This fortress, built to protect the port and town, had cannons and a permanent military crew which made life much safer

Fishing tradition

The people of Sućuraj have always been known as excellent fishermen. There is a fleet of ten trawlers in the town, medium-sized fishing boats with deep trawl nets. This bag-shaped net is dragged by the ship along the seabed with the help of metal cables. The dragging lasts for several hours and it is called “kalada”. After that, with the help of a hydraulic winch, the net is lifted onto the ship. The catch is spread on the stern of the ship and sorted and stacked. This method of fishing is called trawling, and it is usually done from dawn to dusk. Sućuraj fishermen trawl the central and southern Adriatic, and their catch is sold in many Croatian cities and exported to neighboring countries
