Church of Our Lady of Prizidnica

The church in Prizidnice was built in 1546 by priest J. Strojdražić, the hermit of  Prizidnice who had settled there years before. On the facade of the church there is an inscription in old Italian (italiano volgare) carved into the stone board:

PRE ZORZI STOID
RAZIC VENE QUA
IN EREMITORIO ED
IFICHO QUESTO
TEMPIO AD ONORE
BEATE MARIE CONC
EPCIONE MDXLVI

In translation: Priest J. Strojdražić comes here in hermit's residence and raises this temple on the honor of Blessed Maria of Conception in 1546.

The sanctuary is situated in beautiful natural surroundings on the southern part of the island, on the stone cliffs beside the sea. The steep cliffs, blue sea, blossoming agaves and a lot of autochthonous plant species, beside the old convent and small church enriched with votive ships, make this place incredible. It is 460 years old and many stories and legends are connected with the place itself, which elder people from Slatine will gladly share when you visit it....
The religious tourism has been developed: pilgrims go on pilgrimage to the Our Lady of Prizidnice four times during the year: On Easter Monday and Whit Monday, on Immaculate Conception of Blessed Virgin Mary and Holy Name of Mary 's. Believers in large number go on a pilgrimage on Holy Name of Mary's when sanctuary is full of pilgrims not only from Slatine but from other surrounding places as well.
