This was an export port for quarry produced stone blocks for building famous Diocletian Palace in Split, listed by the UNESCO as the World Heritage. Stones for the palace were collected in quarries Plate, Rasohe and Strazisce. In Rasohe you can see the relief of Greek mythological hero Hercules. There is also a thematic path Hercules available in tourist offer which starts in Splitska.

I was so excited about seeing the Roman remains, but what a waste of time. Okay, it's quite a nice walk there, but when you arrive............what a let down. There isn't much at all. Shame.

Not a difficult walk for experienced walkers but not one to attempt in flip flops. Track is steep in places and rubbly. Not loads to see when you get there. The centre stones were overgrown with grass when we were there but it is interesting...More

The walk is relatively boring, and very steep (certainly not suitable for elderly visitors). I think the quarry is hyped up a bit and there isn't much there. It is however something to do and relatively interesting for those who have an interest in quarrying...More

I've been here few time on their festival "fjera". The place is so nice and bit different than other places on Brac. Bit hard to get to but rent some bike it'll be easier.

We walked from Supetar to Splitska to see the quarries. Splitska was cute and had the quarry (Hercules) marked well. It's nothing epic by any means but it was fun to hike and it was a beautiful day when we walked it. Please wear sturdy...More

The quarry is well worth a wander up to, very picturesque path - look out for bright greeny-blue lizards on the stone walls. I was immensely disappointed NOT to see a snake, and it wasn't for lack of looking!!! The carving of Hercules is quite...More

We decided to bike to the quarry on our recent trip to Supetar. Once we got to Splitska we realised that it wasn't possible to bike and walking was hard as well. The road was full of rocks and plants and difficult to climb over....More
