Šepurine Village

The other of two villages on the island is Šepurine.

We believe the picture in your mind when you are imagining a Dalmatian town is that of Šepurine.

Beautiful, quiet, old, noble, stealing breath in front of every house. Solid, stone, steep streets, stone houses, each capturing attention with its particularity, still forming a harmonious, single whole story. It is a story of glitter and wealth that used to be, and laughter that once resounded along these streets.

Population of Šepurine used to be greater than that of Vodice. Today unfortunately, it shares the destiny of all the places on the island.

There are two sacral buildings in picturesque Šepurine. The Parish Church of Our Lady was built in 1978 and the Church of St. Rok in 1620. The latter is known for its baroque altar, which belongs to the era of Venetian crafts judging by its flamboyance and monumentality. An old Croatian cemetery from the 9th and 10th centuries was discovered near the church, where they found fragments of knit ornaments from that period.
