Tri Porte Bay
< back
Tri Porte bay
The name Tri Porte is a joint name for three bays situated 7 km southwest from Vela Luka, and they are some of the most beautiful bays in the aquatorium of Vela Luka. From the surrounding hills that are covered with pine forest you can enjoy a beautiful view over the archipelago of the canal of Korcula. The crystal clean sea, the magnificent underwater world, shades of pine trees and the hospitality of the hosts are surely the reasons way the bays of Tri Porte are a popular site to visit. The church of St. Peter is situated on a mild slope, not far away from the seacoast. It is one of the fewthat who has a parch on the facade. The church is supposed to be built by a fisherman in 1666, who used the bay for its own shelter. The church of St. Jurja is situated on a hill close to the Tri Porte bay. There is a small bell-tower built in front of the church and for the altar hall a Roman marble sarcophagi was used that was probably found in the surrounding area.

Chapel Of Saint Juraj
It is situated not far from the Tri Porte bay on a high hill, and it is prominent in the landscape. It has small dimensions, a rectangular ground plan, without an apsidal. On the narrow high facade stand a small bell-tower on distaff with an opening for one bell. The simple entrance frame roofs over the inclined profiled over entrance, and on both sides of the entrance there are small windows. The chapel is plastered from the outside, and the double-eave roof is covered with tile. A marble classical roman sarcophagus was used as an altar. It must have been found near that place. The chapel is mentioned in the land-register of the community of Korcula from the year 1427.

Mediterranean Oak (Quercus ilex)
Mediterranean Oak (Quercus ilex)
The Evergreen, Holm, or Holly Oak is a tree that puzzles many folk at first sight, For it looks much like an enormous holly tree. A closer view, however, will show that its leaves, though evergreen, leathery, and dark in hue above, are white and hairy, not green and smooth, beneath; they are never prickly, though sometimes their edges are toothed; and the twigs are downy. The bark too differs, being black on young trunks, and dark grey, shallowly patterned into small squares, on older ones, whereas holly bark is always smooth and pale grey. The dark brown acorns, of course, reveal the helm oaks true relationship. They are borne in long, hard cups, and are themselves remarkably long and narrow, tapering to a point; they ripen in their first year. The flowers resemble those of the common oak, but the male catkins are greenish-white and rather short-stalked.
The evergreen oak is a characteristic tree of the macchi, or evergreen scrub of the Mediterranean countries, but it is quite hardy in the south and west of Britain. Slow growing, and rather tricky to transplant, it is used sometimes for ornament but mainly as a shelter tree; it stands up very well to strong sea winds. Each leaf endures two years, and there is a heavy fall of tough, brown, leathery leaves in May and June. Seedlings occasionally spring up spontaneously. The sapwood is white, and the heartwood dark brown, very hard, strong, heavy and durable. The timber is valued in its homeland, but too little grows here for it to be marketed.
