There used to be two villages on the island, Mostir and Nastan. Cultural heritage on the island is the dominican monastery. You can find two deep, safe bays on the island which have been historically used by greeks and venecians and keep sailors nowadays safe from strong winds. Hvar-Zavala-Scedro-002The small island of Scedro can be found between the islands of Hvar and Korcula.
