Viganj lies in a spacious bay, west of the cape of Liberan. Peljesac peninsula is connected to the mainland by daily fairy lines, as well as by road via Ston. Thanks to fertile land and plenty of sunshine, the inhabitants of Peljesac have lived off of wine, olive, fruit and vegetable growing for centuries.

The remains of flint and other archaeological artifacts indicate that the Viganj and Nakovana was inhabited in the Neolithic. Probably it was the same group of people who lived in Nakovana and periodically went down to the sea in search of food. During ancient times Nakovana with Iliyrian settlement on a hilltop “Grad” (town) dominated this entire area, controlling the maritime routes. Due to better control of channel Illyrians from Nakovana built many fortified guardhouses on the mountain peaks above Viganj, and in the narrowest part of the Pelješac Channel, Cape St. John. Along whit those guardhouses, the number of piles in Montun (part of Viganj/ montun = pile) area, and tombs from the same period in the area of Dol and Bililo (parts of Viganj), as well as debris of caramics show that already somewhere in the V.century BC. Viganj existed as permanent settlement of local Illyrians. (data used from official  portal  www.viganj.org).
