On the steep rocky slopes of Vidova gora, close to the village of Murvica near Bol, is a Wyvern or Dragon’s Cave. It can be reached by a former shepherd’s trail and today a tourist path. The Dragon’s Cave is only about twenty metres long, but preserves numerous traces of the Poljica Glagolitic priests who in the mid-15th century escaped to the steep southern slopes of the island of Brač to lead a monastic life in a cave. Today, the remains of the walls of the chapel and dwellings of the hermits who lived there can also be seen. Inside the cave, living rock has been carved in the image of the dragon after which the cave is named and there are other carved reliefs next to this.
