Located in what once was Lastovo’s main meeting place or town square is the parish church dedicated to the third century physicians and brothers Saints Cosmas and Damian. The original construction of the church, which can no longer be distinguished, was renovated and extended in the second half of the 15th century by local builders and builders from Dubrovnik and Korčula. One of them engraved his name in stone on two half columns stating “Built by Radosan in May of 1473” confirming the renovation and dates. The new single-nave church was upgraded with its own steeple and inside the church, the main altar was adorned with paintings of Saint Blaise and the holy brothers Saints Cosmas and Damian.

Mjesto Lastovo je staro srednjovjekovno naselje amfiteatralnog oblika s dugom i zanimljivom poviješću. Jedino je naselje na otoku koje se ne nalazi neposredno uz more. Okruženo je brdima, a na svakom od njih je vidikovac s kojeg se pruža pogled na mjesto i okolna polja. Obiteljske kuće iz 15. i 16. stoljeća krase lastovski "sulari" i bogato ukrašeni “fumari” (dimnjaci) koji su postali zaštitni znak Lastova. Lastovske skalinade (kamene stepenice) obavijaju staru jezgru oko crkve i šire te daju poseban mediteranski ugođaj.
