Trsteno is a small settlement north-west of Dubrovnik, an old fishermen village with a long tradition in seafaring, so it’s no wonder that Trsteno hosts one of the oldest and most beautiful Arboretums in the whole region. The summer residence of Gucetic – Gozze family from the 15th century, with the encompassing garden, aqueduct, the beautiful fountain with the Sea – God Neptune and nymphs, the belvedere pavilion overlooking the Elaphite islands, is the finest example of Gothic-Renaissance summer residence with developed garden architecture. This summer residence has developed into something special thankfully to Trsteno’s seafaring tradition as the seaman would bring all kind of plants, bushes, and trees from their voyages for their summer residence gardens. In 1962 the residence and the gardens have been declared a monument of garden architecture and a collection of decorative trees and bushes. The Arboretum collection of exotic and decorative plants include over 300 species! It is a highly recommended Dubrovnik tour, especially for people who enjoy the green lush nature and beautiful sea-views. The Arboretum is perfect for walks, sun bathing, reading books, enjoying the calm and simple sightseeing. The Neptune fountain with the ancient aqueducts is a magnificent work of art.
