Kupari - Did you know?

The village Kupari was first mentioned with the name of Kupari in 1317. The name “Kupari” (roof-tilers) comes after the factory in which roof-tiles (Kupe) were produced. The year 1200 was pressed onto the products, indicating the day of foundation.

Twelve ovens worked for drying bricks and tiles, and the entire production was supervised by the Dubrovnik Republic, which organised transportation, and sales of tiles.

The clay was dug up from underneath Kupari, which created the Kupari hole that was rumoured to be a source of fever. The hole was partly filled at the beginning of the First World War and that is when the production of roof tiles (“kupa”) ended.
