The quarry is well worth a wander up to, very picturesque path - look out for bright greeny-blue lizards on the stone walls. I was immensely disappointed NOT to see a snake, and it wasn't for lack of looking!!! The carving of Hercules is quite...More

We decided to bike to the quarry on our recent trip to Supetar. Once we got to Splitska we realised that it wasn't possible to bike and walking was hard as well. The road was full of rocks and plants and difficult to climb over....More

A bit hidden in the woods is this ancient quarry. We loved it there. Imagine all those people havi g worked there so hard 2000 years ago! I was very excited about the scraping marks in the rock where they cut the stones.

A nice walk to find Hercules, after a long search finally found him! When arriving at the Hercules sign look on the rocks on your right.

I was so excited about seeing the Roman remains, but what a waste of time. Okay, it's quite a nice walk there, but when you arrive............what a let down. There isn't much at all. Shame.

Small quarry, poorly signed, little information. At least a 20 min walk. No parking. Poor uneven path not suitable for children or elderly.

Not a difficult walk for experienced walkers but not one to attempt in flip flops. Track is steep in places and rubbly. Not loads to see when you get there. The centre stones were overgrown with grass when we were there but it is interesting...More

The walk is relatively boring, and very steep (certainly not suitable for elderly visitors). I think the quarry is hyped up a bit and there isn't much there. It is however something to do and relatively interesting for those who have an interest in quarrying...More

I've been here few time on their festival "fjera". The place is so nice and bit different than other places on Brac. Bit hard to get to but rent some bike it'll be easier.
