Geocache Description:




This traditional cache inspires you to a 15-minutes-walk to a place with a nice view of Povlja.

Povlja is a small village at the north-eastern shore of the island of Brač. About 400 people live in Povlja. Their main income is tourism, agriculture (olive oil, wine), fishing, and quarries (marble).

The church of St John the Baptist was built nearby an early christian basilica of the 6th century. The church bells were not melted down for weapon production during World War I as so many in this area because local people hid them. So you still can hear the old bronce bells of the 18th century.

To find the cache start at the parking coordinates N 43 19.945, E 16 50.180. Then follow the road behind the post office to the north-west until N 43 20.000, E 16 50.060. There you turn to the left and go up the hill on a small path (Update 2021-02-28: the path is no more a small path, as HuntingMary reported). At the top you will find a monument with a large cross. The cache is a one-liter box hidden about 25 m to the SSW at the true top of the hill.

Please, post some photos of Povlja.
