Madonna of Tarac

KORNATI

Madonna of Tarac (*2018. – 01.07.)

The little church dedicated to the Madonna of Tarac on Kornat Island is a modest single-naved sacral building (a rural Late Romanesque church) built on the place of an old Christian basilica, and the remains of the old church were probably used in the construction of the new one. The church is still used for the ceremony of the Holy Mass every first Sunday in July, taking it out of the standard religious frames and making it a part of the tourist attraction of Murter. On this day hundreds of boats hasten to Tarac and their votive procession is considered one of the most beautiful religious events in Croatia.
