Pustinja Blaca stone desert hermitage on Brac island

Blaca Monastery

The Blaca desert is special in so many ways it’s sufficient to say you won’t find anything similar anywhere else! It stretches for fifty-six acres, between Dragovode and Blaca bay. It is considered a desert because of the scarce nature which surrounds the beautiful monastery, which in itself holds the second largest telescope in Europe.  Today, this is one of the most favourite hiking destinations and picture worthy sights.

Olive Oil Museum

The olive oil museum shows the traditional process of olive oil production on Brac. Here you can view the old olive mills, presses, and all the traditional tools for transport, production, and storage of olive oil.

Milna church – Our Lady of Annunciation

Milna a baroque-style church built in 1783. The church is adorned with an ornate facade and stone steps leading up to it. Its tall bell tower, built in the 16th century, is older than the church itself. Part of the church is also the sacristy – the original small church built in 1519. The inside of the church is cathedral-like, with plenty of light, seven marble altars, and valuable altarpieces, as well as paintings by Venetian artists.


Lighthouse Ražanj

The lighthouse was built in 1874, on the westernmost tip of Brač. Its octagonal stone tower and the adjoining building occupy 110m2. The tower rises from the middle of the facade, with a lantern-room at the top. One of the most famous lighthouses in Brač.


Archaeological site Gradina in Ložišća

Gradina Rat is a prehistoric settlement complex from the Late Bronze Age. Archaeologists found living quarters made of interwoven twigs plastered with clay dating back to 3000 years BC. The bronze objects discovered at the site are evidence of a prehistoric community that disappeared with the arrival of the Romans. Among the many, locally made ceramic pottery artefacts were also pieces of fine pottery imported from Greek or Italian cultures sometime in the last millennium BC. A part of a spear, an axe, and a sickle which were found on the site are in the archives of the Otok Brač foundation.
