Overview

Sveti Duh chapel
Sveti Duh chapel
The trail Sveti Duh - Bol is dry and rocky trail situated in the south area of Brač island. The starting point is near the highway from Bol city to Gornji Humac village. Sveti Duh chapel is situated at the highest point of the trail at the elevation of 620 meters over the sea level. During summer is very hot so I suggest to plan the route for winter, spring or fall. The route can be combined with Bol - Smokovje route. The route is technically demanding one!

Getting there: Europe, Croatia, Split, Island Brač, the junction on the highway from Bol city to Gornji Humac village.
