Pučišća (Brač Island)
with our cruises
This beautiful place arose from stone in a deep cove on the north of Brač. Nicely built stone houses with paved white roofs give the place its charm. Pučišća has always been known for its culture of stone masonry. The harmony and homogeneousness of the plebeian houses, the Renaissance palaces and Baroque buildings made from the white stone of Brač leave every visitor breathless.
With its 1700 inhabitants is one of the greatest places on the island. The town is located on the inner part of the deep retracted bay on the northern side of the island. Connections are with the mainland by catamaran and ferry (Supetar to Split and Makarska-Sumartin). Pucisca is connected with other villages on the island by very good roads passing through Postira or Praznica.
Besides stone cutting and processing, the population is engaged in agriculture: production of olive oil and wine, livestock, cheese and lamb. In recent years, tourism in Pucisca has increased significantly.Pucisca are especially suitable for nautical tourism as it has a calm and secure bay, with modern moorings equipped with electricity and fresh water.
