Island Brač is located in the close vicinity of two monuments included in the World Heritage List under the protection of UNESCO, and connected with the mainland and the rest of the world exceptionally well (international airport on the island!). The largest island of Dalmatia is a true oasis of undisturbed nature, authentic architecture and glorious serenity found only in some past and long forgotten times.
Widely renowned and highly regarded in the world, the stone from Brač has been used in the construction of some of the most famous buildings in the world, from Diocletian’s Palace in Split to the White House in Washington, but for the houses of fishermen and labourers of Brač as well. The small places on the island are bound to fascinate each traveller with their beauty and the purity of their traditional architecture: stone houses, chimneys, wells, balconies embraced in bougainvillea, churches, campaniles, streets paved in white stone or sea pebbles… grape vines, tangerine, lemon, fig and pomegranate trees in gardens. The unpretentious simplicity of these houses built to resist the sun, wind and time, karst fields and olive gardens, cairns, stone shelters and drywalls testify to the wisdom and diligence of the island’s residents, the generations that have soaked life from the sun, the stone and the sea.
