Brac, famous for its lustrous white stone which the ancient Romans chose as their premier building material tin the construction of cities, amphitheaters, temples, and tombs all over Dalmatia…. including Diocletian’s Palace in Split.
Stonemasonry, as a traditional trade of the area, is still thriving and a visit to the Stonemason’s School in the harbor of Brac is a must. Young teenagers learn the ancient art of chiseling, chipping, polishing and brushing the native white stone, creating as they learn, statues, signs, garden ornaments and décor.
We recommend that you take a taxi tour of the island while your yacht moves on to the port of Bol. See the olive factory where olives are still being pressed each season… and then the quaint nautical museum. The best photo opportunity is from the mountain top where you can capture the most photographed beach in Dalmatia - Zlatni Rat. This is a constantly changing spit of pebbles bordered by a fabulous blue sea. What a wonderful way to end the day!
