The Church and Monastery of St. Francis
It was founded by the Franciscans. The single-nave church and the adjoining monastery were built in the period from 1505 to 1513 while the renaissance church tower was built between 1590 and 1604. Among other things you can also see valuable paintings of religious character in the church. It is also very recommended that you see the inner cloister.
The Nerezine port
The Nerezine port increasingly developed between the 18th and 19th centuries, as a consequence of the consolidation of activities related to the sea, such as fishing and above all, sea traffic and trade. At the beginning of the 20th century the trade fleet of the town reached the number of 37 vessels.
Tržićko guvno (threshing floor)
Among numerous scattered houses in Veli Trsić, which are mostly in ruins today, here and there you can notice interesting elliptic or round constructions. These are threshing floors above which, a long time ago during a windy weather, farmers from that area used to beat the grain in order to clean it from any impurities.
Vela Jama
This horizontally developed cave opens toward the western belt of the island of Lošinj. The humans resided here already back in the Middle Paleolithic period. In its interior the archaeologists found ceramic parts and artifacts, some of them being among the oldest found so far on these territories and over 10 000 years old.
