Situated 130 metres above the Mediterranean port town of Vela Luka on KorĨula island, Croatia, Vela Spila cave has evidence of use from the Paleolithic 25,000 years ago. The elliptically shaped cavern measures 40m in length, 17m in height, and is approximately 30m wide. Thirty six ceramic artefacts dating to the late Upper Palaeolithic period (17,500-15,000YA) are the only examples of ceramic figurative art in southeastern Europe from this period.
