Lun is a settlement on the island Pag. It is positioned on its most northern end; a cape shaped as a forefinger immersed into the seethed bluish Adriatic sea. Historical records of Lun are tracking it from 17th century when the first permanent resident heaved it home on the cape, working as a shepherd, journeyman and a retainer. From that time on, the number of its inhabitants is raising, and today Lun has over 300 people. There are some findings pointing out that the area was a scene for older historical events, such as Illyrian and Roman cultures. But today people are abandoning this beautiful cape and its surrounding; avoiding hostile winters lashed with severe bura and returning to Lun in spring and summer, to find peace and pure beauty between its stones and cheerful waves of the sea after hard labor.
Thus, Lun`s pastures are deserted, although a small number of people are still trying to keep the tradition alive. Lun`s sheeps are still a source of famous Pag`s cheese, made in traditional way. People are growing vineyards and olive on the slopes around picturesque and tame coves. Tourists are visiting this place to find them self in an ambient where time seems to passing slower, or it stopped for some time now. Only modern apartments and rooms for rent in private houses are the reminder of some other life outside this place with mythical atmosphere. Gastronomy offer is something that takes you centuries back, and your senses will be socked by the tastes it forgot as they never existed.
The cape Lun hides a real treasure among its rocks, since that is a place, one of the rare left on the Earth, where wild olive three grows. It is a place such as biblical garden. Even the scientist were surprised when they discovered after a long sampling, that there are some trees among those olives, older than a thousand years! The place is pronounced as a botanical reservoir in 1963. It doesn’t stop to surprise, not only by its age, but by its beauty and rhapsody of sun, crickets and wind intricate between the branches of ancient olive trees.
