Was built in the early 16th century. The feast day of St.Lucy, the patroness of eyesight is on 13 December, a tradition being to follow up the weather during the following twelve days, till the Christmas, as there twelve days will represent the next year’s twelve months.
For its position, this church was also used as an observation post and fortification, but as a power plant as well.
Mjesto Lastovo je staro srednjovjekovno naselje sa dugom i zanimljivom poviješću, amfiteatralnog oblika, okruženo brdima. U mjestu Lastovu se mogu pronaći prekrasne obiteljske kuće iz 15. i 16. stoljeća, koje krase bogato ukrašeni "fumari" (dimnjaci) i lastovski sulari koji su postali zaštitni znak Lastova. Lastovske skalinade (kamene stepenice) koje obavijaju staru jezgru oko crkve i šire, te lastovski dimnjaci daju poseban mediteranski ugođaj, iako Lastovo nije smješteno uz more nego u samom srcu otoka.
