It is the location of the 6th century Church of St. Mary, a 16th century windmill and restaurant Lazaret - all in a real small nature park. All of the mentioned places offer accommodation. Preko has many family houses that rent apartments. It offers adventurous forms of vacation and numerous biking trails on the parts of the island that haven't been urbanized. Three kilometers long asphalted road (we recommend you take a walk or a bike ride) leads from Preko to the excursion site, the fort of St. Mihovil that was erected by the Venetian Republic in the 13th century. From the altitude of 265m you will have a truly unique view. The east side of Preko has the 11th century Romanesque Church of St. John that is certainly worth seeing. Don't forget to participate in the celebration Prijeska legrica at the end of July.
