George Bernard Shaw was so enchanted by this beautiful city, he wrote that "those who seek paradise on Earth should come to...see Dubrovnik", famously describing it as "the pearl of the Adriatic". Dubrovnik's red clay tiled roofs and massive Old Town walls are famous throughout the world and since 1979, it has been a protected UNESCO World Heritage site. Surrounding the Old Town is a majestic curtain of fortified walls that have protected the marble streets and extraordinary ensemble of Renaissance and Baroque buildings for centuries. The main pedestrian thoroughfare, the Placa, is an alluring mélange of cafés and shops with outstanding monuments at either end. Churches, monasteries and museums ornamented with finely carved stone recall an eventful history and a vibrant artistic tradition. Beyond the city is a heavenly landscape of beaches, wooded peninsulas and a sea strewn with lush islands.
