different experience. Nowhere in the system of towns and villages in Dalmatia does terrain play such a
compelling role as in Pučišća with its spectacular irregularity of the steep-sided natural harbour, its authentic

Mediterranean architecture and rustic ambience; the fjord like inlet meets three narrow valleys that descend from the hills to
join those quiet and beautiful waters. Pučišća Quarry was exploited in the Antiquity; the reopening of the quarry took place in 1455, unused since Roman times.
It was from this quarry that stone was excavated to build limestone columns of the White House in Washington DC, The

Parliament house in Vienna and many other famous buildings all over the world
The only Stonemasonry School in Croatia is located in Pučišća where students carve sculptures from Brač limestone with traditional and unconventional tools that have been used here for centuries.
