The municipality of Konavle was settled already during the paleolithic and neolithic, and its villages have preserved the traditional stone architecture up to today. In the 5th and 4th centuries BC, this region was settled by Illyrian tribes while, in the 2nd century BC, the Romans began to develop an important trade and naval centre on the site of the Greek colony of Epidaurus (Cavtat), at the intersection of several important routes. Already in its early history, agriculture and tourism became important elements in the development of the entire Konavle region. Long-standing traditions have managed to remain preserved up to this very day.
