Roman wells

In a sparsely populated and difficult to pass part of the Dalmatian hinterland, there is a real cultural and archaeological treasure.


Whoever decides to toil and break through the woods and poorly marked trails of the Rajčica area, will not be sorry. Ten natural wells surrounded by drywalls raise the blood pressure and pulse of every adventurer who discovers them.

The wells are of a regular round shape. They have stone stairs on the inside, which means that they were probably also used for swimming in the summer months. Between them is a fenced pond for feeding cattle.

None of the locals remember the wells ever drying up. Although they are called Roman wells, they are assumed to be much older. It is even possible that they date back to Illyrian times.
