Blaca Hermitage

Island of Brač

In a spot not visible from the sea, Glagolitic monks built the Blaca monastery when fleeing from the Turks. The original use of the valley was soon discontinued. The land became wild and overgrown, and the hermitage was abandoned and left to itself. Many years later, father Pater Nikola Milicevic used the hermitage as an observatory.

After his death, the Blaca monastery was converted into a small museum that presents the history of the building as well as the life of its last residents with the display of artifacts. The hermitage can now be reached on foot. From the high plateau, it takes around 1 hr. to make your way down to the Blaca hermitage. By car, it is around 45 min. to the monastery, which is 23.3 km from Sutivan. If you are planning to visit, you should check the opening times, because the monastery is not always open.
