The biggest, longest and widest street in Dubrovnik, the grandiose Stradun dates back to the 13th century, while its uniform houses were mostly built more than 300 years ago. The commercial, entertainment and spiritual home of Dubrovnik, the limestone-paved Stradun is the best place to get a feel for the pulse of Croatia's capital. It holds many of the city's monuments and some great restaurants and shops. One of its more famous attractions is Onofrio's Fountain, which is located in a small square near the Pila Gate and Franciscan Monastery. Built in 1438 by a famous Italian architect from Naples, Onofrio della Cava, this large fountain is considered a masterpiece of its time.
