Korcula is a Croatian island located on the Adriatic Sea, lying just off the Dalmatian coast. According to legend, the island was founded by Trojan hero Antenor in the 12th century BC. Korcula was first settled by Mesolithic and Neolithic peoples, and later by Illyrians around 1000 BC. The island's rule and allegiance has since changed hands many times, layering on history and heritage until most recently the independent Republic of Croatia taking ownership from Yugoslavia in 1992. Korcula has a very old Stonemasonry history, a tradition which reached its peak during the rule of the Venetian Republic (1420-1797), evident in some of the island's architecture.
