The Liburnian and Roman town of Colentum is considered to be one of the most significant archeological sites in the area. Remains of the walls on the Gradina Hill,

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT COLENTUM PROJECTS
The majority of the territory of the Gradina Hill, including the Colentum archeological site, is privately owned. More than one hundred parcels belonging to different owners span over the entire archeological site. The realization of any project on the Colentum area would be impossible without the collaboration with the owners. So far the collaboration has been fruitful, and we would like it to remain the same in the future, allowing the property owners to benefit from the Colentum projects.
Hereby we invite all interested parties to contact us to find out more about the potential projects, or to share their own ideas and suggestions with us.
