The Festival has not only artistic importance but is also valuable in that it helps to promote Croatian tourism. The Korkyra Baroque Festival’s offers music of an exceptional standard, attracting tourists from all over the world and enriching the cultural offering of Korčula for tourists. The concerts promote Korčula’s churches as cultural heritage, as well as the entire island as a unique architectural complex.
