Zaostrog is a tourist place and port along the Adriatic Sea in southern Dalmatia, Croatia. It is located between Makarska and Ploche. It consists of two parts, the older part below the steep limestone part of the Biokovo mountain range and the newer coastal belt. Zaostrog was first called "Ostrog" and was one of the larger cities of the Narentine pirates.The village is dominated by the more than half-millennium-old Franciscan monastery of St. Mary of the Assumption, which has an open-air museum, ethnological collection, gallery and a large archive with over 30,000 titles, including 400-year-old incanabula, which form a significant part of Dalmatian history.
