On day seven, a 21.4-kilometre-long section will take walkers from Baška via Jurandvor, Batomalj and Punat to the final destination – Kornić. Following the sculptures along the Baška Glagolitic Trail you will arrive in Jurandvor, one of the most famous sites on the island. What made it famous was an artefact found in 1851 in the abbey complex of St Lucy. It is a stone slab of the altar partition known as the Baška Tablet, one of the oldest historical monuments of the Croatian history, i.e. literacy and sovereignty. The route continues to the west and takes you to Batomalj. Above the village, you will find not only the largest diocesan Marian shrine, but also one of the oldest Croatian shrines. The next climb towards the south-western plateau brings you up to a restored ‘mrgar’ called Lipica and a road with sparse roadside vegetation leading to Obzova and Veli vrh. From there you will be able to see the islet of Košljun, and Kornić, pilgrimage points along the way.
Along the path to Punat, the centre of the eponymous municipality, you will see the Stations of the Cross. The Toš Gallery and Stari Toš Olive Growing Interpretation Centre are well worth visiting, along with the Parish Church of the Holy Trinity and two votive churches dedicated to St Rocco (at the main square) and St Nicholas in Buka. Located at the heart of the picturesque bay of Puntarska draga, the islet of Košljun is a true spiritual oasis, covering only 0.072 square kilometres and welcoming pilgrims that come here by boat every day. A thick forest of centuries-old holm oak and black ash trees hides a Franciscan monastery with a lavish Renaissance church dedicated to the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. A museum with a rich holding of ethnographic, archaeological and religious artefacts, and a library with more than 30,000 books also make part of the monastery. On the way to the last pilgrimage point, walkers will get to know another two attractions: the archaeological site in Kanajt and the remains of a trefoil Romanesque church dedicated to St Donatus. The Camino Krk route ends in the town of Krk area, with the last pilgrimage point being the Parish Church of St James the Apostle.
