Panorama Povlja

Route Description

This circular macadam route covers the north-eastern part of the island and connect a coastal settlement of Povlja with Novo Selo on a hill inland. The route goes along thick woods and enormous quarries, the endless source of white stone of Brač, the symbol of the island. We suggest you take a break and visit the local estate, where you can enjoy authentic homemade dishes from the island. The route goes off the state road and continues downhill south-east to Povlja, where you can visit an Old-Christian basilica from the 6th ct with Povaljski prag, the oldest written testament of Croatian Old Church Slavonian in Cyrillic.
