Pag Town, Croatia
Pag Town

Pag Town is the largest town on Pag Island and is within easy reach of Zadar. It was established in the 15th century and the narrow, stone streets retain a distinctly medieval flavor.Here, gray-haired ladies sit on stools working the delicate Pag lace that is the island's trademark.

Laid out according to the plans of the great builder Juraj Dalmatinac, there are a fair number of houses dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. The most notable monument is the 15th-century parish church which harmonizes Romanesque, Gothic and early Renaissance styles. Notice also the Ducal Palace, the remaining parts of the city walls and towers, and the Lace Museum which displays incredible examples of Pag's famous lace. Just outside the centre are large salt works which have been a staple of Pag's economy for ages.

All along Pag bay are picturesque little coves with beaches and there's a sparkling gravel beach just outside town.The shallow drop-off makes the beach very kid-friendly.
