Because of the unique geography, the history of Pag is intrinsically linked to the production of ‘White Gold’.  It was the precious salt that led to the intense level of conflict suffered by the island over centuries as Croatians, Hungarians and Venetians battled over the territory, rich in salt, as valuable at the time as oil is today.

Apart from salt, the island is also home to some of the finest lace and most skilled lace makers in the world.  Women who were not lace makers worked on the salt pans.  The lace is recognised as some of the finest in the World – inscribed in the UNESCO‘s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
