Narona Archaeological Museum in Metković, Croatia by radionica arhitekture / Goran Rako

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

Article source: radionica arhitekture / Goran Rako

The ancient forum of the Roman city of Narona was buried for more than a thousand years. Barbarians came down the valley, destroying temples and decapitating statues. Then the river that descends from the high mountains piled up the sand and buried the ruins. On the site of the civic centre of the once sizeable ancient city, village houses were built, fields were sown and olive groves planted.

In 2011 the sons of Herminia took over the running of the family butcher’s shop.
