CHURCH OF THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
The Church of the Assumption of Mary is located on the main town square and is the most valuable monument of sacral architecture in Pag. The Tourist Board of the City of Pag best describes this glorious sight.
On the western exit from the town of Pag, on the road leading to Novalja, after the serpentine ascents, on the left is the plateau of Vidikovac. From here you can see the full panorama of the city of Pag. Great for photography or good selfie 😊
GALLERY OF PAG LACE
Lace follows local people all through life and as an unbroken thread symbolizes all the beauty, but also the weight of living on this island of stone and salt. Lace is under the protection of UNESCO, so it can immediately recognize its importance. If you are interested in more click here.
In the city of Pag is an interesting museum located in the former salt warehouses dedicated to this interesting product. Here, you can see the tools and devices by which the salt was transported and made in the past. Seeing all this and how much effort it takes to get the salt from the sea on our tables, we will never take salt for granted.
Why write to you about it, when you can watch the video.
Where to start with the Pag Triangle? Only a kilometer from Novalja is a natural phenomenon, a megalithic print in the middle of a sharp rocky landscape known as the “Paški trokut”. The triangle is upright, 32x32x22 meters in size and has a form of iron print, and the stones within it are brighter and completely different from the surrounding stones. To date, the phenomenon is not scientifically explained. Visiting this spot Vidalica requires the skill of walking on rocky roads due to the lack of trails. Another approach is the road to the ferry port Zigljen. From this side one can approach the macademic path to this phenomenon.
PAG BRIDGE,THE GATE OF THE ISLAND OF PAG
At its southernmost part,Pag is connected to the mainland via the bridge, which is quickly reachable if you are coming from the direction of Zadar. This is the ideal way for all those arriving by plane because Zadar Airport is abundant with flights from all over Europe. If you do not stop on the Pag bridge, if you do not absorb the beauty and view, you’ve missed the best part.
The island of Pag is extremely interesting and will take you a lot of time to explore it, but given the beauty and secrets it keeps, it will be a great experience.
