From its early days as the supplier of marble for the Emperor Diocletian's palace at Split; through the years as an exporter of wine, herbs and fish; up to the present time as one of the most appealing toursist destinations of the Adriatic there are a wealth of historic sites which chart the island's development over the centuries.
