Church of St. Lucy and Baška tablet
“1100. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, I, abbot Držiha, wrote this concerning the land which Zvonimir, the Croatian king, gave in his days to St. Lucia. And the witnesses [were] mayor Desimira in Krbava, Martin in Lika, Piribineg in Vinodol and Yakov in Otok. Whoever denies this, let him be cursed by God and the twelve apostles and the four evangelists and Saint Lucia. Amen. May he who lives here pray for them to God. I, abbot Dobrovit, built this church with nine of my brethren in the days of prince Cosmas who ruled over the entire province. And in those days [the parish of St.] Nicholas in Otočac was joined with [the parish of] St. Lucia.”This is the text written on the Baška tablet, the oldest Croatian monument written in Glagolitic found in Baška. The church of St. Lucy was built in the Romanesque style, with a semicircular apse on the facade and a bell tower, which was built in the Romanesque style as well. Inside the church of St. Lucy there is a beautiful main altar, the work of the sons of Paolo Veneziano. Today in the church there is a copy of the Baška tablet, while the original is located in the archbishop’s palace on the island.
