Since ancient times, generations of islanders left their mark on the Pharos Hora or Ager – the largest plain on the Croatian islands and the best preserved Greek plot division system in the Mediterranean. Because of this preserved plot division system, the Plain was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2008.
Cycling through this unique monument of culture and civilisation, which is to this day a meeting place for people who cultivate the land and harvest the fruits of their labour just as their ancestors did, will make you want to ride the trail again just to make sure you discover all the details which will fuel your imagination and encourage you to think about the events which took place throughout history.

The Purkin Kuk trail takes us to the highest point of the island – St. Nicholas’ Peak (628 m). Purkin Kuk is the hardest trail, but your efforts will be rewarded with the most beautiful view of a vast sea, neighbouring islands, islets and cliffs sloping from the top of the south side towards the sea.
At the very beginning of the trail you’ll see an incredible sight: slopes of hills and hummocks divided by dry stone walls built by people for centuries and surrounding the lavender plantations.
