On the small hill just above the port of Trpanj was a fortress of a considerable size, and it northern walls are especially well preserved. The total length of the walls is 60 m.
The location, plan and wall construction indicate that it was built in the late antiquity, probably in the time of the Byzantine emperor Justinian who built a series of fortresses along the Croatian coast to protect maritime commerce, after having driven Goths out of Dalmatia. The fortress has not yet been analyzed by archaeologists.
