Radimlja is a stećak  located near Stolac in Bosnia and Herzegovina and it is situated in Vidovo polje. This is one of the most significant monuments of the mediaeval period. 

Those tombstones date from the 15th and 16th centuries. The road Čapljina-Stolac was built in the Austro-Hungarian period. During that period, it ran through the necropolis, leaving 11 tombstones to the north and the rest to the south of the road.

Twenty of them were probably devastated in the process. All in all, a total of 63 are decorated, line engraving or a combination of the two. The finest examples are pediment tombstones as well as tall chest-shaped. There are also epitaphs on five tombstones, referring to the Hrabren Miloradović family.
