    Walking through the Old Town of Dubrovnik - a focus is on the most important historical buildings: the Rector's Palace, monasteries and convents, cathedral, orphanages and historical palaces.


  • Girls were sent to convents, regardless of their will, or they were married to a man much older and more suitable for fathers than husbands.
  • Cut off noses and ears, foreheads stamped with red-hot iron and blemished faces with sharp razors were female signs of expressed disobedience.
  • Numerous maidservants breastfed their masters' children, at the same time killing their own illegitimate children of the same father.
  • Renaissance poets were writing songs glorifying female beauty and virtue, at the same time paying high fines for raping women.


Trip Info

For centuries women in Dubrovnik were invisible, and beside the Criminal court transcripts and some last wills there are no other traces of their lives. This tour revives their treatment in the Christian, patrimonial medieval society.
