The island of Hvar has many faces - one laughing that attracts party lovers from all over the world and the other somehow serious, one that takes care of many of the treasures of the island past. Hvar is all that, and it offers everything in its 300-kilometer-square-mile area. And this area is divided into administrative municipalities, with the Vrbanje the biggest of all, a picturesque place near Stari Grad. Vrbanj is also one of the oldest settlements on the island, its history dates back to times when the coasts were under constant threat of pirates and conquerors, thus the population was inhabiting fertile fields in the interior of the island where they built their defenses from the attackers. They also built loopholes and towers, all made of the blocks of stone, imprinted in the gentle Mediterranean landscape. The island still preserves numerous medieval buildings, but the most beautiful one is located here - Chapel of St. Kuzma and Damjan in Vrbanj on Hvar was built in the 14th century. This unique example of sacred architecture of the Middle Ages is completely made of stone, with stone tiles on the roof that carries a square apse. If you rent an apartment, room or holiday house in Vrbanj on Hvar, you will find the Chapel next to a new graveyard above the Old Town Field. It can be the starting or the endpoint of your walk through the natural beauty of the island of Hvar and the layers of the historic legacy of the Mediterranean.
