BRZAC : it is a lovely village , situated in the most Western part of the island, near GLAVOTOK,surrounded by a forreste. It has a nice beach and a pretty harbour for the boats of its residents. Next to this village there is the most beautiful camp site of the island,”Camp Glavotok”. Today is is a popular destination for tourists.
However, long ago…
However,in the past Glavotok was known as CAPUT INSULAE, the holiday home of the KrK frangipane prince . A nice chapel belonged to this place- the prince gave this chapel as a present to Mátyás Bosnyák in 1468 to settle his monastery there. Todey’s monastery of Immaculate Conception was built in 1507.
Tha Franciscians used the galgolitic alphabet. Th service was given in old-Croatian.
It is interesting that tha Croatia has a large number of historic memories written i Galgolitic.- the oldest one comes from the 1510s.
Thanks to the well-known lexicographer Dragutin A. Parcic (1832-1902), Glavotok had the first printing house, the „SERAFINSKI TISAK”
The church was redecorated in the last century, so today there are often val retreats and gatherings organized there.
The small church of Saint Krsevan is located above the bay of Cavlena, under the village of Milochnici- about 3,5kms from the monastery.
It is possible that the church was built in the 5th-6th century. Th church is 129 m2, with a Greek cross on the top of it.
In Rijeka on 25th June , in 1956, a resolution was passed that put this church under government protection.
This place has a path that leads you to this special place.
