Igrane is a beautiful small town on Makarska Riviera, situated on a steep slope that descends towards the sea, a harbour, and a long pebble beach. A beautiful belltower of the ‘Gospe od Ružarija’ Church rises above the town, and Zalina Tower from the times of the Turkish conquests is also nearby. Just above Igrane, in the old olive orchards, there is the Church of St Michael, dating from the 11th century, which is the most important medieval monument on Makarska Riviera, and has been under the protection of the government since 1962. Close to the harbour there is the Baroque summer residence of the Šimić-Ivanišević family from 1760. Sarcophaguses found at the cemetary testify to the existence of a Roman settlement. Today, Igrane is a famous tourist destination with a number of hotels, holiday houses and apartments, a beautiful beach, and various sports and entertainment events. The most interesting event –‘the Night of King Arthur’ – is a spectacle that connects Igrane with the famous legend of the king and his sword, and according to another legend, the town was named after king Arthur’s mother, Igraynne. On the night in question, visitors can try various typical delicacies, witness a Roman legion march, see king Arthur, his queen Guinevere and his mother Igraynne, visit a gladiator fight, find out more about Roman craftsmanship, watch the fireworks, and enjoy music events.
