The salt warehouses are structures in the monument category, situated opposite the town core at Prosika. They testify to utilitarian architecture of past times and the importance of salt production to Pag’s natives. The first three warehouses were built in the 17th century, while the other six were constructed during the second Austrian administration.

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.
