From the yard, you will be able to enjoy in beautiful view, facing island Brač and Zečevo, Vrboska, Jelsa and Stari Grad bay.
A unique example of well preserved rural architecture, formerly a pastoral village, Humac originated in the 17th century. At the height of 350 m above sea level, you have a magnificent panoramic view of all the surrounding places, coves, the island of Brač and Makarska’s coast. The charm of this village lies in its harmonious stone houses, courtyards, balconies, narrow streets and nature which all give an inspiring sight. The church of Sv. Ivan and Pavao (St John and Paul) in Humac is of a recent date.
Humac is a very old village where man has been living for centuries. There are many simple houses made of stone in its surroundings called trim, built without binder in a way that they become narrower towards the top. Many of them have their original foundations from early Stone Age. Inhabitants of Humac have been occupied with cattle and wine growing for thousands years, and in around 1950 they started growing lavender. In the last few centuries people didn't live in Humac, but spent time in Humac during major agrarian works.
From Humac there are organized visits to the nearby Grapčeva špilja (Grapčeva cave), one of the most important prehistoric site on the Mediterranean with the findings from 4 000 B.C.
