Živogošće

On the southern part of the Makarska Riviera, at the foothill of mount Biokovo there lies Živogošce. It is comprised of three smaller, non-coherent places on the coast: Porat - Mala Duba – Blato, and old hamlets along the old road. It is only 20 km away from Makarska, 80 km from Split and 120 km from Dubrovnik. Živogošce has been inhabited since Illyrian and Roman times, to which Illyrian tombs on top of hill Suzina stand as witnesses. Also, villa Rustika in Mala Duba and Blato does the same. The well known Licinianus epigram from 474. g. BC, comprised of 16 latin hexameters – the most beautiful specimen of classical literature – carved into a living rock above the spring of Pokrivenice on the coast. In it the roman questor Licinianus celebrates the source of «drinking water», which still flows there.

As a settlement, Živogošce is for the first time mentioned in the mid 13th century. The Franciscan monastery in Živogošce, founded in 1616 , was this area's center of  spiritual life and literacy, with a rich library and valuable art work. It gained it's present form during the last 40's when a more significant tourism development in these areas begins.

Natural beauties of olive groves and pine woods hovering over small pebbled beaches that are 6 km long, clean and unpolluted sea, all in the foothill of a big mountain(hilltop Sutvid – 1155 m) and all giving tourists a special lure and pleasure of stay.
