Ston, a small town and harbor in south Dalmatia, at the far northwest end of the Ston channel and the cove that connects the Pelješac Peninsula to the mainland, 59 km northwest of Dubrovnik. Its economy is based on agriculture, vineyards, olive groves, fishing and shell-farming, and tourism. Ston was and is best-known for its saltworks. It is located at a crossroads that connects Pelješac to a highway.
In Roman times it was known as Stagnum. The foundations of a Roman castrum have been preserved on a hill called Starigrad. In the 10th century, it was the seat of the diocese probably alongside the Church of Our Lady of Lužina. Present-day Ston was founded in 1333, as soon as Dubrovnik obtained Pelješac. A five-kilometer long wall, the longest in Europe, connects Large and Small Ston. The walls are open to visitors.
