The gastronomic and oenological offer of Konavle is an integral part of the entire tourist offer, the sentiment and the atmosphere of the Konavle region.
The restaurants and konobas base their gastronomic offer on the Dalmatian and Mediterranean cuisine: fish, vegetables and olive oil, and they seek for and follow the modern gastronomic trends. In numerous taverns and rural houses, the inland of Konavle offers traditionally prepared plain fare and healthy food in a unique atmosphere of the old Konavle houses.
Naturally, a good meal asks for a good wine. Konavle, counting also its wine-growing district to its landmarks, has an appropriate production of quality and autochthonous wines. Next to the internationally known types of wine such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon also numerous local and autochthonous types are cultivated, such as Plavac Mali, Kadarun, Dalmatinka and others. Among them all, the autochthonous and domestic type of the Dubrovnik Malvasia blanc takes a special place. It has been almost completely destroyed, and great importance was placed on its preservation and renewal. Numerous winegrowers from Konavle, who follow international trends, produce authentic and quality wines that exquisitely go along with the domestic gastronomic delicacies.
Konavle region is excellent for cycling, hiking, horse-back riding, and basically anything to do with nature.

Fort Sokol or Sokol Grad is the biggest and for its location on the mountain pass towards Bosnian hinterland, exceptionally important fort from the period of Dubrovnik Republic. It was built on the site of an Illyrian and roman fortification, the proofs for which are the roman details and roman bricks in its walls.With its form it is adjusted to the natural cliff on which it was build. From the fort and from the churchyard of Our Lady of Sokol one has a unique view of the whole Konavle.
Watermills on River Ljuta
There is a system of watermills and stamp mills built on river Ljuta which consisted of eight watermills for flour, two watermills for oil and three stamp mills. When the Dubrovnik Republic bought Konavle, there were four mills on the upper stream of the river. After 1550, the system called "lower mills" was built and has been preserved until today.
The functioning of the mills was based on a canal system, and some of them were driven by three aqueducts. Most of the buildings were on the western bank apart from the Đivanović stamp mill, which was on the eastern bank. The mill system was extremely important for the economy of Konavle and the Republic as a whole.
The river source and the upper stream is under protection of the Government as a park of nature, whereas the watermill is protected as a cultural monument.
