An inrwsting cave, where you need to climb a little to reach it. Not so big but worth to visit to see and read some information about our civilization from the past.

From center Vela Luka, it takes about 20 minutes to walk up. Along the road, you have marvellous panorama of Vela Luka, and surroundings. The cave looks amazing with several large holes on the top.

We walked the 2,5 kilometre walk which was very peaceful but is all uphill. The caves are very small, 15 kuna each and nice to see, some good information, doesn't not take long.

This is a special place. Archaeological digs are still taking place, revealing different periods of history. A series of free audio clips can be accessed in English via your mobile, supplementing the information boards in the cave. We took the steps up and walked down...More

We were staying in Vela Luka so decided to walk up to see the Spila. It is a good walk so wear good shoes and take some water as it is a fair climb but the view is worth it..

Wife and I went for a walk to the cave and were the only ones when we came on the cave's entrance. The guy who charges the tickets was very unpleasant and did not know anything. The cave is really nothing to see and expect....More
