Flores Timur

Flores Timur (East Flores) with its capital, Larantuka, has since long been an important naval base for trade, a central point for colonialisation, as well as missionary activities in eastern Indonesia. Having a long Catholic history, Larantuka hosts the glorious Reinha Rosari Cathedral where pilgrims from all over the world gather during the Larantuka Easter procession. If ikat is your passion, then you cannot skip Lewokluok: a place where you can find the cloth uniquely inlaid with seashells. Leworahang features a heritage site with long-preserved, exquisitely carved traditional houses richly that will delight travellers with interest in art and culture.
