Dragon's cave, monastery at Blace hermitage and Dominican monastery at Bol are few of
the most interesting historycal locations definetly worth a visit.
Other interesting locations are the church Madonna of graces (15-17th century.),
the fortified gothic summer palace (end of 15th and beginning of 16th. century),
and the local church Madonna of Karmel with the motive of an angel with the handkerchief
of Veronica (finished at the end of the 18th century).
Blaca Hermitage is situated between Bol and Milna on Brac, on the south side of Brac Island,
and is one of the most fascinating excursion destinations on the island. The Hermitage
was once a famous Glagolitic monastery and observatory, built at the foot of tall,
steep cliffs. In 1551, two Glagolitic friars from Poljice made themselves a dwelling
in a cave known as Ljubitovica, and from this humble beginning, a monastery was founded.
The building contains many items of historical value, including books, a small printing
press and the observatory with its telescopes. The monastery library has 11,000 volumes,
many of them printed before 1800. The archives reveal that generations of monks carefully
recorded all the details of their economic and daily agricultural business, the dates
of blossoms, fruit and harvests in the Blaca fields, and the rhythms of the weather.
The contents of Blaca Hermitage have been preserved and are today organised in a museum
exhibition. The monastery had its own school and church, dedicated to the Assumption
of the Blessed Virgin Mary, built in 1588.
The Slap cliffs conceal a freshwater spring and pool. There is a deep pit here and it
was formerly the site of the monastery apiary.

This Cave is about 200 m from the small village of Murvica (6km from Bol). It was a

island of Brač.
There are reliefs in the cave of particular historical importance, depicting the way
of life in those days. To this day, Zmajeva Spilja is the site of Slavic myths about
fairies, werewolves and witches and Mediterranean stories about Orkomarin, a one-eyed
On Cape Glavica is the church of the Dominican monastery (founded in 1475), a one-nave
structure with the Gothic vault, later extended with another nave. The main altar

are illusionist paintings of the Baroque painter Tripo Kokolja from 1713 (Apotheosis
of St. Dominic). The monastery keeps a collection of artefacts
and works of art (paintings, manuscripts, incunabula, about 6.000 ancient coins).
