These (mostly gravel) roads were initially built for fire prevention, but soon enough became favorite routes for all nature lovers. You start at approximately 300 meters above the sea level, in Podpec hamlet ,whose name literally translates to "under-the-caves". Look above your head, and it will all make sense to you. Podpec hamlet is a part of old Tucepi's area (or, how locals like to call it "upper" or "gornje Tucepi". To understand the difference and meaning of this "upper" and "coastal" adjectives, read this article about Villa Nina). From here, the track heads west.

Winding across the hills at the foot of Biokovo mountain, this route offers amazing views of the Riviera, and some great photo-ops.
