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.

Out of the eight national parks in Croatia, this one receives the most visitors and is one of the most distinguished. In 1979 it was among the first in the world to be registered in the World Heritage List (UNESCO).
The Ethno-Gallery of the Družina Culture and Arts Association contains many valuable exhibits: typical Pag blouses adorned with Pag lace, older women’s and men’s folk attire, various items of apparel, antique parts of furniture and photographs that testify to life as it once was in Pag.
Skrivanat Tower is the only remaining tower out of the 9 towers that defended the town of Pag. It was built in the 15th century and has been preserved in its original shape.
Until the mid-19th century, the town of Pag was encircled by sizeable and lovely walls with defence towers. Pag had several town gates, and the largest was in the Katine section, called the Porta Marina. Only the lintel of Rector Nikola Tiepolo remains preserved from this gate. The Minor Gate was a little farther south.
