The Racic Family Mausoleum

The Račić Family Mausoleum (a famous Cavtat ship¬building family) is a unique beauty, which like a white swan meditates eternity, oating above the sunny seas of Cavtat and the alley of pines, cypresses and palm trees. It is located in the cemetery of St Rocco in Cavtat, and built in 1921 on the site of the former 15th century Chapel of St. Rocco, according to the will of the testatrix, Marija Račić. It was built from white, Brač stone in the form of a dome, and throughout the building, there is not a single piece of wood or any other material beside the bronze, used to make the door and the bell.
