Gornje Selo is a small village situated at an altitude of just above a hundred metres.
It is a typical example of the Mediterranean architecture, protectively overlooking the rest of the island. The architectural integrity of the village with the church bell tower dominates all views, even when looking from the sea, i.e. from the Vis Channel, reflecting its environmental value.
Owing to a fertile land and the vicinity of bays on the southern side, farming, vine- and olive growing, and fishing have always been the main occupations.
Today, when walking through this hamlet with typical Dalmatian architecture, you can findhouses restored to their original state, typical Dalmatian taverns and the essential part of the local tourist offer – family farms and an oil mill, where you can treat your palate to the award-winning flavours of oil, wine, olives and herbs turned into liqueurs. Do not hesitate to take a walk, explore and enjoy the village!
