Villa Tripalo is a Secessionist building dating back to the 1920 s, situated in a quiet corner less than 100 metres from the main square (Pijaca) in Sinj, occupying a site covering more than 4000 m2.The villa is a memorial to the croatian politician Ante Miko Tripalo, the leader of the “Croatian Spring” movement, whose bust stands on the entrance.
Villa Tripalo is a protected cultural monument.

The spacious park is walled, and the entrance to the house is on the north side, through the gateway fitted with original, wrought iron gates. The roof has been restored to its original condition and the facade renewed according to the original, in terms of both the colour and quality of the plaster used, and the decorations.The each porch has a typical double-winged staircase and two balconies with decorative concrete balustrades. These balustrades and the glazed veranda give the villa its country house character.The interior has been decorated throughout with geometric patterns and the motifs from the plant world, which were rediscovered during restoration work, and implemented in order to reconstruct the original appearance of the rooms as far as possible.

Villa Tripalo is characterised by period woodwork, particularly the external and internal door- frames, with brass features, decorative carvings and panels in the Secessionist style.The wrought iron features of the house are also all original, including the outer gates and basement window grilles.The villa has been furnished with period pieces and top quality Baroque and Empire style furniture, finished with carefully chosen textiles. The final touch is given by the carefully selected period tableware and light fixtures.

Villa Tripalo is a two -storey building consisting of a basement and raised ground floor. Each floor covers 175m2. The original aspect of the house meant it was built around a central corridor running from east to west, linking the porch on the east side with the glazed veranda on the west side. There are three well-appointed rooms to the north and south of the corridor.

Today, each has its own dressing-room and bathroom. The living area occupies the most favourable, southwest section of the house.

In the northwest corner of this green sea, in the shadow of Mt. Visoka and at the foot of an old fort, lies the town of Sinj, an attractive verdant setting difficult to imagine as the site of fierce combat and great suffering.

Sinj is located 34 kilometres from Split. It is a patchwork quilt of fields and pastures, stitched together with rows of willows and poplars.

  • It is the place of pilgrimage to Our Lady. Every year thousands of people from all parts of Croatia and further come to Our Lady and have left spiritually strengthened and renewed.

Every year, on the first Sunday in August, a tilting competition takes place here, brilliantly costumed knights (alkari) competing according to tourney rules preserved over the centuries. This tilting ceremonies last for a three days. On the first day the “Alkari” (tilters) complete for “Bara” and on the second for “Coja”, which is the pre-qualification stage for the main competition. “Vojvoda” (the Duke) puts three meter long “Coja” (red homespun) on the winners lance point.

The competitors in knightly postures on galloping horses aim the ring target called “Alka” with their lances. “Alka” consists of two concentric iron rings linked by three bars dividing the space between the rings into three equal parts. A hit into the smallest central part (“u sridu”) gives three points, the top part two and the bottom parts one point each. The winner is the competitor that has collected the maximum number og points. Vojvoda ties a threecoloured flag called “plamenac” to the winner called “Slavodobitnik” and gives orders for the Alkar`s name to be recorded in golden letters in the Chronicle of Chivalrous Alkar (Tilting ) Club.

The Alka tournament presents symbol of victory of the people of Sinj and the Cetina district from Turkish attacking.

Proud and jewel of Sinj and Cetina district is Miracle Painting of Bless Virgin Mary of Mercy. This portrait is one of the most beautiful painting in Christian art. There are many Mary royal towns in catholic world. Numerous pilgrims come to receive Marija´s mercy.

The outlying housing developments that form part of Sinj in administrative sense include Bajagić, Brnaze, Čitluk, Glavice………
