The church was built on the remains of an early Christian church at the turn of the 12th to 13th century. It is the most significant church, not only in the area and on the island, but in Croatia, as the famous and invaluable Baška Tablet from the year 1100 was found there. The church houses a copy of the original tablet.
The main altar is decorated with a wooden polyptych, the work of masters Luke and John, sons of Paolo Veneziano, from the 14th century. The original polyptych is kept in the bishop’s residence in Krk.




The BaškaTablet is a national monument, significant for the Croatian nation. It is a glagolitic inscription, a document consisting of 13 lines carved in stone. The text documents a donation of the Croatian king Zvonimir (1075-1089) to the church of St.Lucy in Jurandvor, where the Baška Tablet was found inserted in the church floor.
It was found by Petar Dorčić, the local priest, in 1851.
Following is Vjekoslav Štefanić’s interpretation of the text:

1100. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. I, abbot Držiha, write about the land given to St.Lucy by Zvonimir, the Croatian king, in his days. Witnesses are Desimir, the prefect of Krbava, Martin in Lika, Pribineža, delegate in Vinodol, and Jacob fom the island. If this is denied by anyone, may he be cursed by God and the 12 apostles and 4 evangelists and St.Lucy. Amen. May those who live here, pray to God for them. I, abbot Dobrovit built this church with my nine brethren in the time of Prince Kuzma who ruled his county. In those days, Mikula in Otočac was together with St.Lucy (=the churches / monasteries of St.Nicholas in Otočac and of St.Lucy were under the same authority).



s dedicated to glagolitics and all glagolitic writers throughout history. It is a Croatian historical primer from a to ?.
The aim behind the project is to construct a long-lasting memorial, which will teach visitors about the cultural-historical significance and values of the area, and also the history of Croatian statehood. This will be carried out in the Baška valley, the area where the Baška table was discovered – the document about Croatian statehood from 1100 A.D.
In this project a path made out of stone sculptures is being created, that in the end will stretch from the Treskavac pass all the way to the old pier in Baška harbour. This path won’t be in a straight line, since all the sculptures will be located beside important cultural, and historical landmarks or significant natural areas. There will be 34 stone sculptures with sculpted glagolitic letters; four of larger dimensions, and the work of the academic sculptor Ljubo De Karine, and thirty taking smaller dimensions, which will be created during the Baška sculptors workshop.
The mentor and artistic director of the project is Ljubo De Karina. The project will take between 4 to 5 years to complete. Within this series of sculptures, there will be a 35th one, which will be a sculpture dedicated to glagolitics and glagolitic writers. All the sculptures will be adorned with a brass plaque. This will be placed on the sculpture’s plinth and will show the traditional letter of the sculpture, the name of the sculptor, the Latin translation of the letter, an inscription in Braille, and the name of the person whose donation funded the sculpture. The BGS project was started by the Sinjali Association from Baška, and  finished in 2009.

are dry wall buildings that take the shape of stone flowers, and are intended for the temporary collection and classification of sheep that are owned by different people. During the year, the sheep get mixed up since they graze freely on the heights that encircle the valley of Baška. Mrgari are around more than ten metres, and the largest one can hold up to 1500 sheep. A few times a year shepherds carry out the joint activity of classifying the sheep. This is when they look at and separate their own flock into small mrgarice that look like petals, and encircle the central mrgara or “pen”.
These beautiful examples of local architecture can only be found on the southern most point of the Island of Krk, and the uninhabited neighbouring island of Prvić. There are around 15 in total and most of them are still in use. There are only two other places in Europe where similar constructions can be found – Great Britain (Wales) and Iceland.
