Gospa od Gorme

Mala kapelica u hridini u kojoj se nalazi Gospin kip datira s kraja 19. stoljeća, a nastala je (prema pričanju) ovako:

Tog ljetnog dana vladala je neopisiva žega. Naš čovjek je bio u polju, no vidjevši da se sprema nevrijeme uputio se kući.

Putem ga je sustigla velika oluja te je spas odlučio potražiti u pećini, ispod velike stijene. Od silne grmljavine zemlja se tresla. Odjednom užasan bljesak osvijetli uvalu te grom udari u neposrednoj blizini.

Čovjek opazi lijepu figuru žene u bijelom koja je bila prekrivena koprenom. Pozivala ga je k sebi nekoliko puta, no on se nije micao s mjesta. Munje su bjesnjele, a žena počne jače mahati rukama i prizivati ga. Čovjek pođe prema njoj, no ona nestane. Uto munja bljesne i veliki kamen koji je stajao nad pećinom sruši se upravo na ono mjesto gdje je on stajao. Shvatio je da je žena u bijelom bila sama Majka Božja. Iz zahvalnosti odluči vlastitim rukama u stijeni izdubiti malu kapelicu, koju i dan danas pobožne žene pohode, naročito u svibnju i za vrijeme svetkovine blagoslova polja.

Mjesto se naziva ”Pod gormu”, a kapelica ”Gospe od gorme” najvjerojatnije zato što je Majka Božja sačuvala našeg čovjeka od posljedica udara groma.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!

Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.

BY SEA ///

There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.

First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.

Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!

BY AIR ///

Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač DeluxeRent a Motorino or M&B rent. Check them out!

Once you’re on the island, rent a car, use taxis or local transportation. For online booking with discount, click here.
