The Museum of the Town of Novalja
The Museum of the Town of Novalja is one of the most interesting cultural institutions, primarily because inside of the museum is the entrance to the underground aqueduct (Talijanova buža – the hole of Italian) dating back to the Antiquity, built in the first century BC. The aqueduct is entirely carved in stone by human hand, with a length of 1042 meters and with an average width of about 60 cm. Visitors can see a segment of 150 meters.
The Olive Trees of Lun
The olive trees of Lun make it a unique place on the island of Pag, but also in the world. Among 80.000 olive trees in the area of Lun, there are about 1.500 wild olive (lat. Olea Oleaster), with the height of 5-8 m and a diameter of 20-80 cm. Experts have estimated the age of some trees more than 1.500 years! This area of 24 hectares of wild olive is one of its kind on the Adriatic and one of the three in the world and therefore has a great botanical significance.
Because of its characteristics, it was protected in 1963 and proclaimed a botanical reserve. Olive oil from Lun has a particular quality and aroma and is considered one of the best in the Adriatic.
