Town of Komiža

„Of all the cities at the sea, Komiža is the closest to the sea, and of all the fishermen in the world, the best fishermen are from Komiža. It is a glorious story how the fishermen from Komiža trawled all the way to the bottom of the sea, and pulled out a fairy tale and a dream – a stone town, wonderful, engrossing – Komiža.“

Komiža is an ancient fishing town, located in the southwestern part of the island, where time seems to have stood still.

If you want to spend your holiday in peace and quiet, surrounded by the scents of lemons, oranges, and the grilled fish that will make you dizzy in stupor while strolling around the old town, you’ve come to the right place. The island of Vis, and especially Komiža, provides you with a real holiday for your soul. It is a place where you will be able to buy fresh fish from the local fishermen while still sipping that first cup of coffee on the waterfront in the town’s centre. And each fish will have its fishing story, which your friendly hosts will be happy to tell you, and probably even offer you to go along with them into a fishing expedition.

Komiža has a long fishing tradition, so that a permanent exhibition of traditional fishing equipment can be seen in the Museum of Fisheries, called Komuna – which is an old Venetian tower from the 16th century located on the waterfront . It exhibits traditional fishing tools, as well as a copy of renovated gajeta falkuša, named Cicibela, the symbol of Komiža Fisheries.

The Church of St. Nicholas, also known as the „Muster“, is situated on a hill above our little town, so as if the eye of the protector of fishermen keeps a good lookout on our Komiža.

The Church Of Our Lady Of The Pirates („Gusarica“) is located at the largest beach in Komiža, and keeps a story about pirates who plundered the church, as well as the image of the Mother of God, but the big storm sank their ship, and the image came back to the beach where the church was.

Still, a lot of interesting stories Komiža can tell you – come and visit us.
