Pučišća

Famous Brač Stonemasons

Pučišća is the biggest Brač settlement with genuine Mediterranean features, creating with its white roofs the original local atmosphere, but this place seems to dislike the sea because of the northern wind that whistles in the harbour during the winter months. Therefore it was situated on the fringes of the bay, out of the wind. The houses gradually climb up to the steep clearings above the port. The inlets created by the descent of the Brač uplands to the sea are thus left uninhabited. Although the white slab roofs, being heavier, better resist the force of the north wind, they are slowly being replaced by industrial tiles. And this means an unnecessary withdrawal of the white, stone-built Pučišća.
