Church Our lady of Prizidnice in island of Ciovo

Our lady of Prizidnice is the ‘‘keeper of our sea and sailors’’. In the 16th ct., priests from Poljica chose a desolate point on the steep cliffs on the island of Čiovo and built a shrine dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. Above the entrance carved in the wall are two stone tablets bearing witness to its history. The church today is uninhabited and is located on the south-east end of the island on a cliff above the sea. From here you can see the islands Brač and Šolta. It provides the best location for gazing at the sun while it is rising or setting.
