Lastovo is an island municipality in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County in Croatia. The municipality consists of 46 islands. Lastovo is the biggest island with the largest town in the municipality. The town of Lastovo is spread over the steep banks of a natural amphitheatre overlooking a fertile field, facing away from the sea. This is unusual compared to other Adriatic islands, which are normally harbour side. Other settlements on the island include the villages of Ubli (also known as Sveti Petar), Lučica, Zaklopatica, Skrivena Luka, and Pasadur.
The island is noted for its 15th- and 16th-century architecture. There are a large number of churches of relatively small size, a testament to the island's long-standing Roman Catholic tradition. The major cultural event is the Poklade, or carnival. The island largely relies on its natural beauty and preservation to attract tourists each season.
