Church of St. Mary
The largest church on the island is the church of St. Mary. It was built on the model of the cathedral in Osor. The church has three naves, with two side chapels and an apse. It contains Gothic and Renaissance elements in its architecture. Next to the church is a bell tower, which has five floors and is 22 meters high. On the fourth floor of the bell tower on each side is a trefoil and on the same floor bells are located. The church was built in the late 15th century. It was renovated in the 17th century after a lightning strike, and in the 18th century after the great fire. The church has largely preserved its appearance from the 15th century.
