Ložišća is a picturesque village in the hinterland of Brač with a predominantly folk architecture and one of the most beautiful bell towers on any Croatian island. From here, a path leads among the olive groves towards the only large stone bridge on the island of Brač, which was erected in 1898 to celebrate fifty years of the reign of the Emperor and King of the Austro-Hungarian Empire Franz Joseph I. This is an excellent example of road building during the Second Austrian Administration in Dalmatia (1813-1918).
