Loggia in Korcula

Loggia in Korcula (1900s)

Loggia – Loža –  This small building at the western harbour of Korcula Old Town, next to Sea Gate entrance to the Old Town, under main town walls, was built in 1548 as a place for passers by to sit and rest, as well as a shelter from a bad weather. Loggia has one wall only, part of town’ s main walls, as well as 12 columns that support loggia’s roof.

For years, this loggia served as waiting place for ferry passengers, but back in 1980’s large glass panels were added around the columns to adopt loggia for other use – it became local tourist information office.
