The Kornati Archipelago is a specific island group in the heart of the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea. It extends over a surface of roughly 320 km2 and encompasses about 150 islands, islets and reefs.
The construction of Pag’s Benedictine Convent of St. Margaret began right after the new town of Pag was established, as a memorial to the former church and convent in the Old Town.
Lun is the northernmost town on Pag and a natural olive reserve. There are about 80,000 olive trees along with 1,500 of the Oblica variety growing over 23 hectares of land. The trees grow entwined in stone, creating intriguing forms and surreal contours.
DISCOVER THE WONDERS OF THE RENAISSANCE CITY OF LACE AND SALT, THE CITY WHERE THE ANCIENT AUSTRIANS, THE VENETIANS AND THE FRENCH HAD LEFT THEIR TRACES. TAKE A LOOK AT THE LONG AND RICH TRADITION OF THE ISLAND THAT HAS BEEN CHERISHED FOR CENTURIES: THE FAMOUS LACE THAT IS THE PEARL OF THE MEDITERRANEAN TEXTILE HANDICRAFTS, ROCKY LANDSCAPE THAT RESEMBLES A LUNAR LANDSCAPE AND THE “WHITE GOLD” OF THE TOWN OF PAG - SALT.
Following the trace of tradition, we start our tour at 09:00 by gathering on the old waterfront where there is an exhibition of salt production, which begins the story of our city. After the exhibition we will cross the bridge that connects us to the centre of the town and leads to the main square where the Mary’s Assumption Congregation Church and The Duke’s Palace are situated. Nowadays they are a place where a number of events is being held. In The Duke’s palace we will visit the Gallery of Pag lace which is the most wonderful pearl of the town. Then we will visit to the exhibition dedicated to Bartol Kaš ic, the father of Croatian grammar.
After that, we will visit The Mary’s Assumption Congregation Church and the exhibition Seven Centuries of Benedictine Nuns in Pag which includes tasting baš kotin, town’s unique edible souvenir. After the tasting, we will see the Tower Skrivanat and hear the story of the only
remaining tower out of nine, which used to protect the city from the attacks. Afterwards we will take a stroll to where we had started; where the transportation to the Old Town will wait for us so we can take the tour to St. Mary’s Church and the remains of the Franciscan monastery.

A quiet and peaceful village suited for a pleasant vacation along sand and pebble beaches, ideal for a family holiday. Vlašići Cove has by far the most beautiful sand beach on the island of Pag.
During Venetian rule, Pag’s citizens were exempt from participation in military campaigns due to the importance of salt production. However, Ivan Petar Kašić waived the exemption and participated in one of the most important battles in history: the Battle of Lepanto in 1571.
