Tourist Information

Sv. Jakov (St. James) is a small fishing village above the sea on the northern part of the island Lošinj. It is the smallest settlement on the island. Nerezine is 2km away and Mali Lošinj 15 km. Olive groves surround the village and the coast has a sandy cove where one can enjoy swimming.

St. James lies between 2 small bays. The first, where there is a harbour, is called Studenac (well) from the walled well of spring water where cattle used to drink from two covers of antique sarcophagi.

There are two churches in the village:

St. James church in the cemetary, a Romanesque church with apse, which was extended in 1624 so that in front the nave was enlarged and widiened. This date was engraved on the marble tablet above the facade with Glagolithic letters Č H I G (=1624).

Church of Our Lady built in the 19th century; on the main altar is a painting from the 19th century showing Our Lady of the Rosary with St. Dominic, St. Catherine of Sienna and St. James.

È sicuramente un posto da vedere perché ancora incontaminato. Ideale per chi vuole staccare dal caos turistico al contatto con la natura. Ci vengo da 30 anni perché è parte di me! Viva San Giacomo!

Liebe Uschi, schön Dich hier zu finden! Leben wir unseren Traum in Sv. Jakov - sobald und so lange wir dürfen! Recht interessant sind die Fotos, vor allem das "Rundbogen"-Foto! Der Fotograf hat sich wohl in den Blick von unserer Terrasse verliebt! Sehr gerne würde ich ihn/sie kennenlernen ;-))

Najlepši kot na Jadranu, pravi raj, krasna okolica, prelepo morje, skratka obliž za dušo in telo.

Enkraten kraj, pravi raj za dušo in telo. Nepokvarjena narava, prijetni domačini skratka prelel kotiček severnega Jadrana.

Raj na Jadranu, jedan od lepših kutaka na Lošinju. Mir, divno more i prijatni domačini.

...sveti jakov ist einer der erholsamsten orte, die es gibt...ruhig...interessant ... phantastisch...aber garantiert nichts für spaß-touristen...sondern eher für alle, die die mediterrane natur lieben...

das ist ja sehr schön, aber ein wenig mehr könnte man schon dazu schreiben
