Dol

A few kilometers from the northern coast of the Island of Brac, lying inland, is the village of Dol, which belongs to the municipality of Postira, a coastal area of the isle. The idyllic village of 170 inhabitants is situated at the end of a gradually narrowing valley and is surrounded by a rocky landscape. It is originally well-known for its village charm, which can be best experienced on a walk through the steep, winding streets. Dol today attracts many day-trippers from all parts of the island. The locals are proud of their wine-making tradition and their handicrafts.

The many old stone houses gather up in Dol to form together a rural work of art that is indeed impressive. Also worth seeing is the church of St Michael, which was built in the 9th century. The front door was built from a Roman sarcophagus. In the wooded hills around the village you will find the Church of Sveti Petar from the 14th century. It has a typical Dalmatian belfry, which is home to the oldest bell on the island of Brac. It probably dates from the 14th or 15th century. The present parish Church of Dol was built in 1866 and features a semicircular pediment and baroque ornaments. Visitors can tour the baroque "Dol Cross" (Dolski Skrst) here.

In Dol vacationers will find the opportunity to lay back and just enjoy the rural idyll of the Mediterranean charm of the Island of Brac. A number of beautiful hiking trails meander through the countryside here. The coast with its beautiful beaches can be reached after going only a few miles. A day at the beach is ideally accompanied by a short bike ride or walk as it lies not far away. Among the tourist activities, there are also some small taverns, courts for playing games and a football pitch. There is also shopping in Postira.
