Get to know the town of Selce, a well-known cultural oasis on the island of Brač thanks to its centuries-old stonemasonry tradition. At every step, you will witness and enjoy white buildings and monuments that represent the history of this area. Selca currently has 14 monuments and 30 memorial plaques with inscriptions. Among other things, there is a monument of Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, risen soon after his death. The Neo-Romanesque Church of Christ the King dominates the square, and is also known as the “Brač Cathedral” because of its height. There is a statue of the Heart of Jesus in the church, erected by the most famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović. The bronze statue symbolizes peace because it was cast from ammunition, i.e. shell casings from World War II.
Next to the Church of Christ the King is a monument of Pope John Paul II, it is the first in Europe in full size. Nearby is the “Poet’s Wall”, lined with stone slabs.
The Church of Our Lady of Carmel is the first parish church of Selca and a valuable example of the sacral architecture of the second half. XIX. century.
We recommend lunch at one of the restaurants in Selca: “Ružmarin” or “Park restaurant Petrovac”.
Sunbathe and swim on the beautiful pebble beach in the bay Puntinak, ideal for families with children because of the shallow, calm sea and shade in the afternoon. From here you can enjoy a beautiful view of Sumartin.
Sumratin is a fishing village that boasts a long tradition of shipbuilding. The increasingly popular tourist destination is located at the easternmost point of the island of Brač. The place was named after the early Christian church of St. Nicholas next to which is the Franciscan monastery. It was built at the very top of the hill, so it is not surprising that from this place there are magical views of the close landscape, bays, and the sea. Visit the Shrine of Lučica, hidden in a natural cave where the altar to the Blessed Virgin Mary is located. It used to serve as a shelter for the locals of Sumartin during the Second World War.
You can have lunch at “Kartolina Beach Bar”, “Bilin Restaurant” or “Konoba Top”.
You shouldn’t miss out on the beaches “Rivja” and “Baywatch”.
Today visit the inside of the island. The sympathetic church of St. Nicholas from the X. century is an early Christian church hiding on a hill between Sumartin and Selca. From this place, there is a beautiful view that connects the sea and the mountain Biokovo.
Between Selce and Povalje is a small town Novo Selo. Because of its location among olive groves, quarries, and wildlife, the locals are engaged in oil pressing, stone processing, and medicinal herbs. Entering Novo Selo, you will be greeted by an unusual exhibition, i.e. stone sculptures by the famous stonemason and sculptor Franjo Antonijević.
In the very center of the place is the neo-Romanesque Parish Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Povlja is situated on the north-eastern side of the island of Brač, surrounded by numerous attractive bays. Povlja is known for the oldest sacral building on the island of Brač, an early Christian basilica with a baptistery from the V. century. Its remains are located next to the parish church dedicated to St. John the Baptist.
Possible places to enjoy the sun are “Tičja Luka”, “Dramotinj “beach, “Ratac” beach and “Okuč” beach.
Restaurant “Maslina” and tavern “Kala” will surely make your stay in Povlja even more pleasant.
