Blaca hermitage, also referred to as the Blaca monastery or Pustinja Blaca in Croatian, represents a unique cultural monument, once Glagolitic monastery, later an observatory, and today a wellknown museum located on the southern side of the Island Brač. This natural and cultural phenomenon indeed represents a complex eco-museological system which was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in 2007. It all began in a stone cave where two monks of the Croatian Glagolitic Order found their shelter fleeding from the Turks in the 16th century. The monks established the monastery of Blaca and built a church. The monastery was in use for over 400 years, and the area surrounding the cave was cultivated by the monks during that time. Blaca hermitage is a national treasure and one of the most unique museums in Croatia which has been functioning as a museum within the Centre for culture Brač since 1994. This Centre conducts the project of the Blaca hermitage revitalization and conservation with primary aim to restore its buildings and to adapt out-houses. Its further goal is to enable preservation, valorization and presentation of the Blaca hermitage total heritage in religious, museological and economic sense to both local and foreign public.
