A living witness to the past of Trsteno
The massive plane tree, the symbol of Trsteno, is a protected park architecture monument. Its beauty, size and age make it a popular tourist attraction. In the early 15th century, the sapling was brought from Constantinople by Captain Florio Jakob Antunov, who planted it next to a spring. The tree has survived all would-be conquerors - Turkish invaders, Napoleon’s army and Russian troops - thanks to the mild climate, the life-giving spring, and the care of the locals entrusted with its survival.
