Ancient Aqueduct – Talijanova buža

The greatest treasure is our unique ancient aqueduct from the 1st century, carved out of solid rock. This one-of-a-kind Roman aqueduct, popularly known as Talijanova buža, supplied Novalja with water from the Novalja fields. The aqueduct is 1.2 km long, with a width ranging from 60 to 70 cm and 9 surface or air openings, which can be up to 40 m in height. The entrance to this town water supply system is located inside the Town Museum, which boasts some of Novalja’s cultural and ethnological heritage.Visitors are allowed to enter up to 70 m into the Roman aqueduct with mandatory use of protective equipment provided by the Town Museum.

Welcome to the olive groves of the village of Lun – a peaceful oasis and one of the most picturesque and beautiful spots on the island of Pag. These parts show traces of nature’s bounty, which truly take your breath away. For centuries, about 80,000 wild olive trees growing on an area covering 400 ha, have been grafted by using scions of cultivated olive varieties, primarily those of the olive cultivar oblica. Among the many olive trees that grow here, 1,500 wild olives (Olea oleaster) stand out in particular, reaching a height of 5–8 metres. This area covered in wild olives is the only one of its kind in the Adriatic and is highly botanically valuable. In 1963, owing to its unique properties, it was designated as a botanical reserve. The oldest olive tree in the Olive Gardens of Lun has been around for over 2,000 years, which makes it one of the three oldest olive trees in the world, along with trees from Greece and Israel.

Regain your strength in the invigorating silence among these ancient trees, and rediscover the peace and quiet missing in your busy everyday life.
