TOUR INFO

From the ancient times, people from the island live in harmony with surrounding nature and on Brač there is lots of stone. Whether is taken from the ground to have some fertile soil or it is dug out from the stone quarry for valuable building material people, the Brač stone is an important part of Brač hermitage.


Today on island you can see a lot of handmade drywalls and bunches of stone that testify to the heavy weight of the burden but also their skills of making dry stone constructions who became shrivelled cultural good. If you visit today stone quarries you witness modern techniques of extracting this valuable material that is today used for souvenirs, art and building material.


Visit with us Rasohe, Roman stone quarry where they dug stone for Diocletian Palace, after that we take you to Pučišća and last stone masonry school in this area which carries stone processing to new generations. Take a break in Gažul, old shepard village made of stone and eat like locals. Discover with us small village Donji Humac and Jakšić family who will tell you their life story through the stone gallery and they will even give you a chance to make your own souvenir creating your best memories.
