Pucisca

Things to do - general

Pucisca is a settlement in the middle part of the northern part of the island Brac turned to the channel of Brac, Omis and Makarska. The settlement originated on stone, at stone and from stone. Pucisca has 1706 inhabitants, along with Supetar, this is the biggest town on Brac. It is located at the bottom of a deep bay which splits into two smaller bays: Puciski dolac and Stipanska luka.

Pucisca is rich of stones. The work with the stone and the life from it are brought over from generation to generation. Nowadays a stonemason- school is working there. Many palaces throughout the world have been built with the local stone from the renaissance age until today and you can see it on every step. The sculptures of domestic and foreign sculptors are set on many public places. Other economy branches are cattle-breeding and agriculture.
The surrounding of Pucisca, like the whole island Brac, is famous for the production of olive-oil, vine, and figs. Thanks to the various Mediterranean plants and grasses and the sea and mountain air, Brac is a true paradise. The historic Plinius the older wrote about  island of Brac as a place where excellent goats are raised: “capris laudata Brattia” (by goats praised Brac).
On the Brac, there is a famous hotel Deskovic.

This hotel is a building with four stars and it has a restaurant, a vinoteque and a galery.

Pucisca have been and still are a strong cultural centre of Brac. In 1516 the first private school on the island was established in Pucisca. In Pucisca have worked also very famous stonemasons Juraj Dalmatinac, Andrija Alesi and Nikola Firentinac. The builder and constructor, military engineer Ivan Puljizic was born in Pucisca in the middle of the 17th century and he worked on the court of the Pope Inocent X. From Pucisca is also Trifun Bokanic, the outstanding builder of the third floor of the cathedral in Trogir.

A harmonious renaissance building by the castle Ciprijan Zuvetic is outstanding among the monuments of the profane architecture. The castles are a brand-mark of Pucisca and very interesting from the historical point of view.

There is also the Palace of the family Moro, today the official building of the Municipality Pucisca and the Primary school Pucisca from the times of the Austrian- Hungarian government, which opened in 1902.

An extraordinary cultural and historical monument is the famous Povaljska listina which is kept in the parish court. According to its original from 1184 it is the oldest preserved document written in Croatian language and Croatian letters. The Listina is one of our oldest and most important language monuments in general. The most monumental sacrale monument is the parish church of St. Jerolim, built in 1566 and spread in 1750. There is also the church of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a bell-tower. Almost a trademark of Pucisca is the small church of St. George on Bracuta.

Today Pucisca have a branched cultural activity which reflect itself in many cultural manifestations, especially in the Cultural Summer-festival – concerts of classical, pop and jazz music, performance of klapa (traditional a-cappella music), exhibitions, promotion of books, literature evenings and various sports- events.

stone and salt.
