Croatia accommodation lets you discover fascinating history
The region around Supetar boasts an interesting history and has been inhabited since Roman times. Guests in our villas Croatia often hike to the quarries, a source of the island’s famous white limestone. Alternatively, visit the church of St Peter of Supetar to see the Christian mosaics, which have been preserved from the 6th century. Although the church was first constructed in the 6th century, it has been restored and rebuilt several times. After being destroyed in a fire in 1727 it was rebuilt in the 18th century and is a must-see spot during your self-catering Croatia holiday.
Culture and trade
At the Cape of Saint Nicholas, a settlement was formed by the Turks fleeing the mainland. Following this, Venetians later constructed magnificent palaces and Supetar quickly became a trading centre. The Cape of Saint Nicholas is now a cemetery and also home to an extravagant and slightly kitsch mausoleum which dates back to the year 1904. It was commissioned by the wealthy Petrinovic family, who enlisted the help of Toma Rosandic. The white dome of the mausoleum dominates the landscape and may be visible from your villas Croatia.
