Biokovo is a magnificent mountain with roots released into the sea. Every step to the highest peak, Sveti Jure at 1762 meters, will be an unsurpassed experience rewarded with a beautiful panoramic view of the sea and surrounding islands, Zagora, the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina and even nearby Italy. An incredible 87 stone churches and chapels were built on the solid Biokovo stone. Also, Biokovo hid over 400 pits and caves. Some of them are constantly full of snow and ice despite the heat of the sun.
