City Lodge is located on the main square of Cres, the Frane Petrić Square. The City Lodge and its pillar of shame have been preserved to this day. It was first mentioned in the mid-16th century. According to historical documents it is considered that Cres had another lodge, which was located near the church of St. Mary. The today’s lodge with the pillar of shame was very important in history. Trade occurred there, contracts were concluded, proclamations read and offenders tried. Offenders would be tied to the pillar of shame so that people could spit and shoot on them. Offenders were most often thieves of sheep, goats and, etc.
