Lun – Olive groves leave you breathless

The Lun area has about 80,000 olive trees, and the ones that stand out in particular are the 1500 trees of ‘Oblica’ sort. It is believed that some of the wild old olive trees in Lun are more than a thousand years old, making them some of the oldest in the world.
This is the only example of wild olives preserved in their natural environment on the whole Mediterranean.
Lun is a village in the northernmost part of the island which resembles the shape of a finger. According to some sources, its name derives from the old name found in historical documents - Punta Loni, but there is also a version that the name derives from the Latin and Italian name cape Lun: Punta Longa, lunga, Lun.
