Pag lace is the unique handicraft made by valuable and skilled hands of woman from Pag. It is believed that the Pag lace takes its origin from the city of Mycenae. In the town of Pag making lace began in the late 15th century for the church liturgical vestments. Making lace was initiated by the Benedictine convent that had a school of lace. Lace collection that Benedictine nuns kept and collected more than 150 years, the Ministry of Culture declared the Croatian cultural heritage. History remembers the time when women from Pag went to the court of Maria Theresa to make lace for her.

One of specialities is a lamb. Lamb has specific flavor because of the environment in which lives and feeds autochthonous Pag sheep Pramenka. A variety of medicinal plants grows on the karst, barren rocks: nightingale,sage, miserly, small grass strewed with salty wind, from frequent winter storm. Because of such breeding and dietary habits, lamb meat has a specific taste. We could say that the world gastronomes consider that is unforgettable delicacy of Pag table.
