Saint Mary on the Rock Church was built in 1442 under the instruction of the priest Marin Vlahanović as evident from the entrance door: “In the year of our Lord 1442, the departed priest Marin, son to the late Vlahan Vitić, had this temple built in to honor Mary the Mother of God”. The church was not provided with an altar painting until the first half of the 16th century when donations lead to the purchase of the triptych painted by artists from Dubrovnik featuring Mary, Saint Cosmas and Damian, Saint John the Evangelist and Mary Magdalene.
When Lastovo was part of Italy, the church was used for storage. Today, the church is used for prayer and to celebrate the feast day of The Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the 12th of September each year.
Taxi service is available from 0-24 calling the provider.
Mjesto Lastovo staro je 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” (terase) i bogato ukrašeni “fumari” (dimnjaci) koji su postali zaštitni znak Lastova. Lastovske skalinade (kamene stepenice) obavijaju staru jezgru oko crkve i šire se te obogaćuju poseban mediteranski ugođaj.
