- General information
Krapanj, a small
island in the south-eastern part of the
Sibenik channel; area 0.36 sq km; the highest peak 7 m. Krapanj is separated from the mainland by a 300-m wide strait. It is largely covered by underbrush and grasses; the northern part of the island is under forests. On the eastern coast of Krapanj is the village of the same name with a population of 2,513. Chief occupations are farming, fishing and processing of sponges.
In the Middle Ages Krapanj was owned by the Sibenik chapter. During the Turkish invasions, from the end of the 15th century, the island offered shelter to the refugees from the neighbouring villages on the mainland. The Franciscan monastery and the church were built in the 15th-16th century by local masters. The church was finished in 1523 and extended in 1626; the present bell tower was erected in 1907. On the left altar is the painting of Our Lady of Krapanj, a work by a local master from the 15th century. The monastery, reconstructed in 1626 and repaired in 1668, has a Renaissance cloister; the painting of The Last Supper in the refectory is a work by Francesco da Santacroce (16th c.).
