  • February 23, 2020

1500 years old Olive, growing in the garden ever since the arrival of the Croats on the Adriatic Sea.

The ancient tree belongs to the species that can't be found elsewhere in Croatia or its wider region. It's thus assumed this particular tree was once brought over from southern Italy or Greece. As Mastrinka represents a widely known local symbol, the Town of Kaštela decided to revamp its surroundings to get the visitors better acquainted with the old olive tree.
