The ancient traditional story says that Poklad Carnival Event is celebrated as a memory of an old historical event. Catalan pirates attacked the nearby island of Korčula and sent a messenger to the island of Lastovo, with a request to surrender. Instead, Lastovo people took weapons, whilst their women and children went as pilgrims to Saint George church praying for help. And sure enough, the help came as a storm which destroyed the Catalan fleet on its way to Lastovo. After that, the Lastovo people took the messenger and put him on the donkey through the village to laugh at him, and then he was let down the rope and finally burnt.
Poklad Carnival Festival on the island of Lastovo is very special and unforgettable.
