The island of Brac where our retreat centre is situated is one of largest Croatian islands with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world– Golden Cape (Zlatni rat), the tallest island’s hilltop – Mount St. Vid (Vidova gora).

Major quarries, where the famous Brac building stone is excavated, are located near Pucisca, Selca, Postira, Splitska and Donji Humac (this kind of building stone was used in the construction of the White House in Washington and the Palace of Diocletian in Split).
