The cove of Piškera near the village of Nečujam on the northern side of the island of Šolta hides the ruins of a Roman maritime villa and its fishpond (piscina vivarium), whose traces can still be seen under the sea. A local saying has it that the villa was owned by one of the greatest rulers of the Roman Empire, the Emperor Diocletian (247-316). The way to Diocletian’s fishpond leads through Nečujam, the most beautiful cove on Šolta, known for its wonderful beaches, well-preserved coast and stunning cultural and historical monuments, such as the Late Gothic Church of St. Peter and a country house in which Marko Marulić (1450-1524), the ‘father of Croatian literature’, resided.
