Rajac cellars are the unique architectural complex of wine cellars built in the period from the second half of the 18th century till the beginning of the 20th century.
The complex is formed as a close group of 270 cellars around the central square with drinking fountain and gathering cult place. There are curved streets with smaller squares all around the main square.
They are built of stone, often ashlars, or beams, cover with the old – fashioned tiles. Houses are connected by streets and squares.
Cellars are partly dug into the ground to keep a constant air temperature during the year, and on the first floor are rooms for accommodation of winegrowers during the vintage. There are two opp0site entrances in two levels or window if there is no second entrance which is used for putting in the wooden gutter for pouring grapes into the barrel. The oldest cellars, as well as neighboring gravestones were made by the craftsmen for the south.
This unique stone town has always been the habitat of the wine.
