ART AND TRADITION
The Meštrović’s Crikvine – Kaštilac is located in the Split area of Meje, below the southern slopes of the Marjan Peninsula, by the sea, near the Meštrović Gallery. The venue is a historical site formed on a ruined agricultural estate with the remains of the building of the Capogrosso family from the 16th century. The famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović first saw the restored Crikvina in 1959 during his stay in Croatia. It was his first visit to his homeland since leaving in 1942, but also his last.
