Hermitage in a dragon cave: Zmajeva Pećina


Zmajeva Pećina, "Dragon's Cave" is a small hermitage on the south shores of the Brač island in Croatia. The cave is only 20 meters long, but is a fascinating visit, both because is such as fascinating view, high cave on a high hill, and also because my guide Zoran knows so much about the history of the place. This is a cave that houses a monastery. Or housed, it is in ruins. Very interesting!

More information can best be acquired by joining Zoran's guided tours, or from, Wikipedia, Brač  info, and this article.

I also recorded a 3D scan of the cave (but not to the top of the cave, my iPhone sensor did not carry that far). Below you can see a screenshot of the model and a map. You can also access the model on your browser, rotate it around, etc. here. And the map is available in PDF format here.
