city of Pag HDR

Pag is a town that offers preserved cultural monuments, gourmet specialties and different, magical stone landscapes. At a first sight, Pag looks rocky and rough, bordered by a sky-blue sea, almost nestled under Mount Velebit’s imposing presence. It’s often referred to as the “Island of Stone” or a “Moonscape Island” due to its an eerie surface with its rocky terrain and as many different shapes as only nature can create on such a huge insular expanse.
The island of Pag is one of the sunniest Adriatic islands, with over 2,500 hours of sunshine per year. Among the Adriatic’s over 1,000 islands, Pag stands out, for its stony exterior conceals the wealth created over the centuries by the sturdy hands of its hard-working denizens. Pag is truly worth visiting, to discover and savour its many facets.

As the most historically and culturally interesting place on the island of Pag, after a stormy and long history full of numerous ups and downs, the city of Pag has managed to save many landmarks from decay.

Recently, more and more work has been done on the decoration of the Old Town and the environment around it; with the desire to restore its old glory. During the reign of Bela IV. this city had the status of a free royal city; and there still stands the Romanesque church of the Assumption of Mary, which was first mentioned in history in 1192. Next to it are the remains of a Franciscan monastery built later, in the center of the cloister there is still a gustern with a legend about the miraculous appearance of water in times of drought. The population moved to the new planned and built Renaissance town in the 15th century. Originally, the new town was surrounded by high stone ramparts with defensive towers. Today, the Skrivanat Tower, as well as the northern part of the city core, where the rest of the city walls can still be seen, is a living monument of the destroyed ramparts. Also, today’s city administration building is a converted cannon tower, formerly the Kamerlengo tower. On the square where the main streets intersect is the Congregational Church of the Assumption of Mary and the Prince’s Palace. While the Benedictine monastery, with the church of the same name, which houses the valuable chapel of St. Nicholas, located next to the western part of the city walls, the church of St. George, the protector of the city, next to the northern gate, and the church of St. Frane near the east gate.

Pag is also a city of many palaces, on the portals of which the coats of arms of distinguished Pag families can still be recognized.
