The lacework of Pag is listed at UNESCO`s World Intangible Cultural Heritage Register. Women from Pag started knitting it in the 15th century. Pag cheese is known in the entire world as authentic Croatian product. Herds of lambs live on the rocky island slopes and eat aromatic herbs that grow from the karst cracks. Due to the Mediterranean herbs its meat has unique taste. It is especially delicious baked in the embers of fire under the peka bell dome. Besides the lace, salt is the other white gold of Pag island. It always had an important role in the lives of local residents. The production of salt on Pag lasts for more than 1,000 years.
