Father Pavao Vučković, Sinj Sights

By 3 February 2018

The monument to a famous Franciscan is a work of the academic sculptor Kuzma Kovačić. The statue is 2.8 metres high and is placed at the eastern town gates. Father Pavao is known as the leader of the people of Rama and the Franciscans, the people who called Sinj and the Cetinska Krajina Region their new home in 1687 after they fled the Ottomans, accompanied by the intercession of the image of the Mother of Mercy. He further founded both the monastery and the sanctuary of the Miraculous Madonna of Sinj.
