Church of Our Lady of Good Health
The Church of Our Lady of Good Health is better known by the name Gospoja. Our Lady’s shrine is located at a height from which you can see the coastal belt and the Vinodol Channel. After severe cholera, which spread in 1853, the people of Vrbnik decided to build a church dedicated to Our Lady of Good Health for having protected them during severe epidemics. The church was built in 1859. The Day of Our Lady of Good Health is celebrated on November 21st. Inside the church, next to the main altar you can find the statue of Our Lady holding holding Baby Jesus. The facade is decorated with a large rosette, windows with bars, and at the very top of the church is the statue of a soldier.
