This village dates back in the 18th century. Its population is so small. This town is surrounded by dense vegetation. The buildings were so beautiful. They were ancient but in perfect condition. I enjoyed touring this place.
We travelled here for a business trip to learn about agriculture, i loved how the locals explained everything to us. The location of this village is what struck me, the interior of Island Mjlet, which is an oasis of peace and tranquility. It was a wonderful experience being in a hilly village.
I loved the rooms and the staff were friendly. I enjoyed sightseeing from the rooftop. The view of the surrounding area was breathing.
We rented a room during our stay here, the rooms were neat, clean and well kept. Air conditioners were fit everywhere in the rooms and they were lit. The staff were friendly to us .
The numerous stone houses, Roman Mausoleums and statues made of Brac stone depict the good works of architects during the centuries where old tradition of stone processing was in plenty. The baroque bell tower of local Church of St Fabian and Sebastian are an eye catcher. The numerous stone sculptures are a must see too.
