If I was pressed to identify one iconic element for these islands that stand just off
the coast of Croatia, I would have to select the ubiquitous rock walls that mark
property borders. These walls have resisted the strong local winds (called
Bora) for centuries. The longivity of these walls is due to the quality
of the rocks one finds everywhere in this region: very rough surfaces
provide great traction where adjoining points meet--it is not uncommon to find
long standing walls that contain no mortar whatsoever.
