Deep in the heart of olive oil and wine country lies a town that has to be seen to be believed.

Nestled atop an impossibly steep hill, the stone edifices of Zavrsje mask incredible secrets. You would never know to look at it that the strings of creeping ivy were hiding history itself.

The town is marked by a Romanic bell tower, complete with guard posts. This tower is the local Pisa.
Within the town gate are scenes from Hans Christian Anderson, of the Brothers Grimm. Fantastically arranged abandoned houses from the 16th through 18th centuries line mysterious and dreamy cobbled streets. Ivy clings to every conceivable orifice in imaginative dream-scape designs. This romantic staircase, curving up to an arched and vacant doorway.
