Blaca hermitage

The area where the Polish priests arrived from the land fleeing the Turks in the 16th century, and which soon became the oasis in the karst.
They created a monastery and cultivated the land, planted the orchards and built stone hives. They established a school and educated children from the surrounding villages.

Today, the Blaca hermitage is truly a magical place, through the canyon full of pines to the monastery, from the monastery to the bay and the sea.

The last priest left the monastery in 1963, but it can still be visited today to see their rich library, one of the first telescopes in this area and the old piano, that was carried by the workers of Brac from the bay, where it arrived by the boat, all the way up to the monastery.
