Čilipi, a place next to Dubrovnik airport, is the biggest settlement in Konavle and surely the best place to meet the traditions of Konavle. In the centre of the place with the largest church in Konavle (church of St. Nicholas), a square formed up, surrounded by official and family stone houses, in order to create a unique urban micro unit.

The stairs, slightly descending from the church to the plateau of the square, became an ideal stage for numerous visitors of folklore events that have been organised in Čilipi each Sunday from Easter to the end of October for over three decades. Thereby we preserve our folklore and cultural heritage, and that offers the tourists a unique experience of an encounter with our ancestors' traditions, still alive.
The homeland house of Konavle can be found in Čilipi, a museum that bears rich ethnographic source material from the entire region of Konavle.
