Selca is just next to Sumartin on the Island of Brac and just a little bit inland , it has a lovely village square where locals enjoy the sunshine and the coffee bars and as will become clear if you visit Selca, it is famous for it’s stone-masonries!
Did you know that White House in Washington is made from Brac Stone? Apparently stone masonry on Brac was discovered by a Czech stone-mason who was being held as a Venetian prisoner. His name was Stambucco, and it is from this man that many of the people who live here today have the surname, Stambuk! There are beautiful buildings made from Brac stone in Selca and it’s a very pleasant, not so touristy, little town. It is a good place to eat too as it is well known for its very nice home made and local produce such as cheese, wine and honey and of course the Croatian favorite, lamb.
