Church of Our Lady of Carmel

  Soline, Brela     25 Jun 2021
The lovely old Church of Our Lady of Carmel is a votive church built to give thanks for the victory of Christian fighters against the Turks at Sinj in 1715, a battle that ensured freedom from Ottoman dominion for miles around. For this reason, the church was consecrated as Our Lady of Victory. The church stands in a wooded spot close to the shore, a simple, low-slung structure with a cross-shaped floor plan, a semicircular apse and a belltower with a low roof supported on eight column.
