Počitelj is one of the pearls of Herzegovina. It is a small village in the hills, lying on the banks of river Neretva. It is located close to city of Čapljina, on the Mostar-Metković-Dubrovnik road. What makes this village special are beautiful historic buildings that blended with nature. Town evolved between 16th and 18th century. Today, we can recognize two parts of the town: medieval and Ottoman. Of the important facilities in Počitelj, it is important to mention the Hajji Alija’s Mosque from the mid-16th century, which dominates the town, and the Šišman-Ibrahim Pasha’s Madrasah with original copper domes. Another dominant position is taken by a Clock Tower from the 17th century and a hammam – Turkish bath. Right next to the hammam there was an inn for caravans, which is now being renovated, and it used to house a famous restaurant. Počitelj is dominated by oriental construction styles which, together with the Mediterranean style, give this place a special dimension. It had probably existed even before, but Počitelj is mentioned for the first time in written documents in 1444.
