At an altitude of 1,180 m above sea level, at the base of an impressive 100 m high cliff, is the small concealed entrance of Tucepska vilenjaca Cave. In an amphitheatre of vertical limestone cliffs, with a breathtaking view of the sea, the cave seems to be situated in a location selected by the fairies after whom it was named. According to old stories, the fairies who lived in the cave were unusually beautiful blond girls with horses' legs, who frightened passers by in the dark.
