Mostar & Medugorje Day Trip (7)

Pocitelj Village is a small Ottoman hillside village not far from Mostar in the Dubrovnik direction (maybe 15 minutes drive from Mostar Town) – it is on the banks of the banks of the Neretva River, on the main road between Mostar and Dubrovnik. Sitting high on the hill overlooking the town is the impressive fortress, Sahat-kula, which guarded the town in Medieval times. The village is a very fine example of ancient Ottoman architecture – there are pretty little stone houses, a mosque, a fortress, the town walls and a clock tower. The surrounding scenery is lovely and you can also stop on the way to admire the river which is gorgeous at any time of the year but exciting to see in the Autumn when the water is high!
