Basic information

The magnificent ambience of the Velebit Mountain and the direct contact with nature that believers experience during this pilgrimage enriches them spiritually in a manner they find difficult to convey through words. Celebrating the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, believers join in a pilgrimage to the small Church of Our Lady, a votive shrine of the people from the foothills of Velebit and of mountaineers, which is located on Veliki Rujan - the largest plateau of Velebit, and a place safely removed from any intrusion by civilization. Upon their return from the pilgrimage, the believers are welcomed with a traditional festivity that takes place on the main quay in Starigrad. After being spiritually fulfilled, this is a perfect opportunity to refresh your body with some good local food and dance till dawn.
