Komiza is a small
fishermen's townlet, about 10 km distant from the town of Vis. It is
situated at the foot of the Hum hill (587m) at the south-western
side of the island of Vis. It will inspire your enthusiasm by its
charm, rich cultural heritage and its excellent food and wines.
Among many specialities we can emphasise the Komiza flat cake with
salted anchovies, that simply must be tried. In the building of the
so called Commune, a Renaissance palace from 16th C. you can visit
the Fishing Museum. There are also numerous old churches worth
visiting. Among them St. Nicola's Church or the Muster, standing on
top of a hill and protecting seamen and fishermen from the high
above, is particularly outstanding.
Off the Komiza
port, there are several renowned islands of the Vis archipelago:
Bisevo with its well known Blue Grotto, Svetac (Saint Andrew) – the
former dwelling of the Mediterranean she-bear, the volcanic islands
of Jabuka and Brusnik and a myriad of smaller islets.
the town of Komiza is advisible for the guests looking for all the
facilities at hand. There are some nice pebbly beaches close to the
centre of the town, so vacation is suitable for those guests that
come without their cars or avoid using them. There is a regular bus
line and private taxis connecting Komiža with Vis and unavoidable
picturesque places in the interior of the island.
