The second day of Camino Imota starts at the parish church at Lovreć. Follow the road to the left of the church leading to the small village of Bošnjaci. There are a lot of abandoned stone houses lying in ruin alongside the route, bearing silent witness to the harsh economic prospects in these parts through decades. Rocky ground makes it difficult to develop agriculture.
As the route departs the pavement to narrow dirt roads, the scenery may remind you somewhat of Galicia – a region in Spain where all Camino routes end at Santiago de Compostela. The route passes along the numerous stone walls marking the small plots of land, dug up from the rocky ground. The dirt roads are soon replaced by a paved road that passes through small villages along the route. These villages are mostly abandoned with no bars and stores for rest and resupply so make sure you bring plenty of water, especially in the warmer months.
The approach to the village of Lokvičići is slightly downhill, opening a spectacular view of the plains below. Swampy area below stretches along the plain and contains a hidden gem – ruins of a Franciscan monastery on a small swamp island where the monks used to hide from the Ottoman invaders.
After a long walk through the fields in the plain the route ends at Proložac – destination for the second day of Camino Imota.
Accommodation availability at the end of each daily route is very limited. Most pilgrims select their accommodation at one destination on Camino Imota and use local taxi services to get to and from daily stages.
