Visit Sutivan

Tramuntana trail

The trail starts from Sutivan centre southward to St. Roko hill and votive church of St. Roko, built in 1635. Local cemetery is near the church, specific for its underground tombs called „Katakombe“ (catacombs), the only ones on the island.
Going forward, we come to Our Lady of Krtine church, on Krtine hill. You continue riding through Krtine area to Vičja Luka, a cove with rich history and archeological discoveries. Then we descend to the village called Bobovišće at Sea and visit the house of Nazor family and its most famous member, a very important Croatian writer Vladimir Nazor. Nazor built a monumental tower above Bobovišće at Sea called ‘Three Sisters’, dedicated to his sisters. At the bottom of the cove, there is a poet’s monument, made by sculptor Mirko Ostoja.
The trail further leads to picturesque villages of Bobovišće and Ložišća, places which have preserved their rural features to this day. Ložišća is a small, quiet place with steep pebble streets. A tall decorated belfry designed by famous sculptor Ivan Rendić, built in 1889, towers the village.
On the top of Veliki Dolac gorge, not far from Ložišća, is Franz Joseph’s bridge, as the villagers call it. Built during  the Austrian administration, it is a nice place to visit. On a hill above the bridge there is an early Romanic church: Our Lady of Stomorica.
When you climb up to Smičja plateau you will enjoy a wonderful view of the north-west side of the island and then start your descend back to Sutivan. Before entering Sutivan you will pass by old ‘pjover’, flat surface that was used for gathering rainfall before it was replaced by water reservoirs, when Brač started getting running water from the river Cetina.
