Dračevica, this charming little place in the heart of the island, is located on the road leading from Nerežišća towards Milna. Scientists have said that all measurements show that this is the most favorable meteorological place on the island. Only 100 people live here, but it is getting more and more urbanized due to the villas being built and renovated by the international guests that sought and found peace in this village. Villagers are mostly into stone processing and wine making – here is also the vineyard of one of the best Dalmatian wine producers, Senjković family.
The old center of Dračevica is built in a Mediterranean style with the main square in the town center and a number of streets leading to the houses. Village was founded in the 16th century by refugees fleeing the Turkish attacks. The town is also known for its large number of wells. One interesting historical “fact” is that Dračevica wasn’t hit by plague like it happened for example to Sumartin and Povlja – villagers believe it was due to the protection of St. Kuzma and Damjan, in whose honor a church was built, in 1678.
This is a place you most definitely shouldn’t miss, especially knowing it’s an important part of Dolčevita road to Pleasureville. Check it out!
