One of the symbols of the island, the quality white stone from Brac's quarries has been used for building many important edifices since Roman times. Amidst the island's hills you'll discover villages where you can taste sheep's milk and meat products as well as homemade wines. Folk festivals featuring extreme sports competitions, concerts, and nightlife make the island's small harbors especially appealing to younger crowds.
