Hidden Gems of Hvar Small Group Half Day Tour with Lunch or Dinner3 reviews
Continue along an old island road "paved" with amazing views. Pass by perfect views of the island's deepest bays, and eventually reach the fascinating village of Velo Grablje founded in the 14th century. Explore the village's stone houses and courtyards as you admire the area architecture, walking the narrow streets as you absorb the settlement's timeless charms. Today the village is nearly abandoned, but a few permanent villagers remain. Although it was once a rich and prosperous place, famous for its good wine and olive oil production. Honey production was also well known in the village as well, together with lavender oil being the leading one in Europe of the time.
