General info

The Castle over Ljubuški, on top of Buturovica, usually ascribed to Herceg Stjepan, even if older then him, was built in the Middle Age. After the conquest, the Turks reinforced and enlarged the castle.

This castle had a granary, water reservoir, prison, commander’s house, and in the vicinity settlements for the army garrison. In the 17th century, the  artisans from Dubrovnik repaired the town. In the beginning of the 19th century the town lost its military importance and soon began to decay. This castel represents today one of the biggest tourist attractions in the area of the Ljubuški municipality and the whole Herzegovina. This year, the Ljubuški municipality has drawn up the project for the preservation and reconstruction of this historical castle.
