This lovely Konavle town, with its large hillside stone church, has become an international meeting place for numerous tourists arriving on Sundays to observe traditional folklore performances. Held every Sunday (from March to late October and several times throughout the winter) from under clear blue skies, the musical and dance performances are enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.
Visitors may also visit the "Konavle Homeland Museum", decorated as a Konavle home, which show beautiful examples of the Konavle folk costume, as well as artefacts and jewellery. Also available are a number of original handmade souvenirs, in particular some Konavle embroidery sold by women wearing traditional folk apparel. The tourist association organizes tourist accommodation in very comfortable homes.
More information is available at the Čilipi Tourist Association.
