The Chapel of the Annunciation of Mary and viewpoint
As orientation for the sailors who were returning from long voyages, on the cape of Veli Lošinj you can find the Chapel of the Annunciation of Mary, popularly called Madonna. Easily recognizable, made from light and dark stones which creates an effect of stripes, the chapel is a place which the generations of wealthy families Bundić and Stuparić chose as their final resting place. Although it was built in the 18th century, as a small one-nave church, its present appearance dates from the 19th century. The viewpoint provides a view of the surrounding islands and the open sea, which was very important in the time of the chapel’s construction. Children used to await the return of the sailors and spread the news of their arrival from the viewpoint.
