Supetar Harbour
Supetar Harbour

Supetar is the main port of entry on Brac Island as well as its administrative centre. Although many people only give Supetar a passing glance on the way to the much more touristed Bol, it merits more. Fertile surrounding countryside with vineyards, olive groves and orchards, pine woods all along the coast, lovely bays with sandy beaches (particularly the bay of Vlacica) make Supetar an excellent base to explore the island.

What to See

The harbour is an attractive place for a stroll and is backed by a small group of medieval streets. The most outstanding attraction is the 18th century Church of the Annunciation which is worth checking out for its 18th-century altar paintings and monumental staircase. It stands on the site of an early-Christian church, from which a mosaic and a number of old tombs were preserved.

On the western edge of town is a large tourist complex, beach and watersports centre.

On a little promontory which closes Vlacica bay from the north there's a local cemetery which contains several tombstones made by the sulptor Ivan Rendic (1842-1939) who was born in Supetar.

Rendic also began work on the nearby Petrinovic family mausoleum but was, in effect, fired by the Petrinovic family who tried to hire Ivan Mestrovic. When the great sculptor declined, the commission was given to Toma Rosandic who created the evocative white stone monument with Byzantine-Oriental features.
