Driving to the Pag settlement..
We drove through the back of the island – from the east Novalja town) to the west side of the island Pag - the town Pag. At the start you can see that Pag town is not so touristic developed as settlement Novalja, but it is still the centre of cultural events on the island. Compared with the main season in the month August is town in September almost empty. But it is still nice to walk down the steets with paving stones, its very relaxing. The town of Pag is also known for its sea salt
Pag was founded and built in the 15th century, and the main reason was the salt. On the island is still present the salt manufacture by draining of the sea, which is brought in the small clay pools. Salt pools are very interesting photographic motive and also an authentic relict of the past. In town is also very famous so called needlework or the famous lace, because each of this laces are unique items. Very demanding and slow process of making these laces has been nourished through centuries and it is still alive on the streets in the town
Town Pag is the most interesting historical and cultural place on the island, but it is still not the oldest place on the island. We can find the reamins one kilometer to the south, this remains are from the settlement which preceded todays Pag. The king Bela IV granted the name of the Royal Borough. The construction of the new town started by strict designs of Juraj Dalmatinac in year 1443.
