The Old town of Bar was built at an ideal strategic position, at the foot of Mount Rumija where it is protected by steep cliffs.

Almost entirely destroyed by the 1979 earthquake, today, the Old Town of Bar is an open-air museum with many buildings being restored. The distinctive Clock tower, originally a medieval tower, was later repurposed by the Ottomans.

It pleasantly surprises visitors with its beauty and size. The whole region is famous for its old olive trees. Olives have been around in this area for over 500 years.

Protected by the law, loved by the locals, every grain and drop of olive oil is highly valued both among the locals and among the visitors.
