The island of Brač will soon join the Croatian and European network of Camino de Santiago routes. This is the first cultural route established by the Council of Europe, and in Croatia, it has a tradition dating back to 1203 when pilgrimages were organized from Croatia to the sanctuary of St. James in Santiago de Compostela. Today, Camino is becoming more and more popular throughout Europe due to the special “Camino experience” and the benefits that this pilgrimage brings.

Camino Brač is the sixth section of the Croatian Camino network, which has been walked by more than 3.000 pilgrims from Croatia and neighboring countries in the last two years, and there is a growing interest from the US, Australia, and South Africa as well. In addition to its beautiful nature, the island of Brač is also known for its rich sacral and cultural heritage, which pilgrims can now explore along the Camino Brač route.

The Camino Brač project is being realized by all the tourist boards of the island of Brač and the municipality of Nerežišća, in cooperation with the Confraternity of St. James, and with the support of the Tourist Board of the Split-Dalmatia County. The Confraternity of St. James is the official Croatian representative in  the Archicofradia de Santiago in Santiago de Compostela.
