For centuries, the Benedictine Convent of St. Margaret in Pag has produced the baškotin – certainly the oldest local treat: a type of hard sweet toasted biscuit made according to a special convent recipe. The Benedictine nuns have nurtured the tradition of making the baškotin for over 300 years. Pag residents are very fond of it; in times past, they greeted guests with baškotini and white coffee, and any family celebration was considered unthinkable without them. Today the Pag’s baškotin carries the label “Croatian Creation” and “Croatian Island Product.”
Baškotini may be purchased in the Convent of St. Margaret:
- Mon & Sat: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
- Tue – Fri: 9 a.m.-12 p.m. & 4 p.m.-6 p.m.
