Besides standard Dalmatian dishes, Brač has many of its own culinary specialities:
The Brač lambs roasted on the Spit; vitalac - lamb's offal (liver, milt, heart, lungs)
skewered and wrapped in lamb's sheath; stewed lamb; sea fish on grill.
Brac sheep cheese is also quite famous including procip. Procip is made of fresh cheese
cut into slices and baked in caramelized sugar.
Some ten sanctuaries date back to the early Christian times (the three-foil church
in Sutivan, the three-nave basilica with the baptistery in Povlja and Postira, Supetar).
The first churches in pre-Romanesque style appeared in the 10th century (St. Nicholas
above Sumartin, St. Michael above Dol).
After that sacral buildings started to follow the styles of the development of the
Croatian architecture with Romanesque features (St. George above Brač, St. Elias near
The Baroque-style architecture saw its best moments in the construction of churches
(Škrip, Ložišća, Milna, Nerežišća). The high level of architectural design was
maintained in the 19th century as well (Ložišća - bell tower, church in Selca).
HERMITAGE BLACA (Blaca desert) is one of Brac's most beautiful destinations.
It is located on the east edge of the long valley that sweeps across the southern
side of the island. It is a famous glagolotic desert above a towering cliff.
It dates back to the 16th century. DRAGON'S CAVE Zmajeva Spilja (Dragon's cave)
is west of Bol. This is a first-rate monument to cultural heritage filled with reliefs
that describe the monestarial, cave-dwelling habitance of the glagolitic priests in
the 15th century. It is approximately 200 meters above the small town of Murvica.
Škrip is the oldest settlement on the island. Set on the top of the
hill, with its belfry, church facade and huge towers it appears like a town strangly
lost in this karst. It is a monument in which three ethnic layers have deposited
(Illyrian, Roman and Croatian) the evidence of their presence. The old Illyrian walls,
sarcophagi, towers and churches, all are sqeezed on this hill into some subtle entity which
gives to this neglected rural village an atmosphere filled with some dramatic heroism.
