On Good Friday morning, the inhabitants of Dol start their Via Crucis procession from the Parish Church of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary (built in 1886 on the site of an earlier church), led by a cross-bearer and performing the ‘Weeping of the Lady’ passion chant. The stations along the Way of the Cross are announced by the children playing an idiophone instrument called the škrgajke, but they encounter the procession only at one station, next to the early medieval Church of St. Michael (9th-11th century) on Mihoj Rat Hill above Dol. The procession leads to two more important monuments of the island’s sacral heritage: the Romanesque Church of St.  Vitus (13th century) on the top of the hill of Velo Brdo and the former parish church of the village of Dol dedicated to St. Peter (11th-12th century). Its bell tower features the oldest preserved bell on the island (14th century). Certain Stations of the Cross are also vantage points that offer panoramic views of Dol, the neighbouring villages of Postira and Škrip, and the Brač Channel.
