Rolling Around Rab
The small town of Rab, founded in Roman times, was once encircled by medieval walls during the 12th century. Today, parts of the walls can still be seen along the cliffs, and in a few places close to the harbor. Biking is a wonderful way to explore Rab where you can experience it's island culture and nature. Discover an excellent collection of artwork seen at the Franciscan monastery. Continue riding along the Frkanj peninsula where you will experience the scents and views of the Mediterranean forest.
This Yachting Land Adventure starts by collecting your bike and rolling along the streets and down the promenade to the newer part of the town. Stop at the Franciscan Monastery for a visit of their historic collections including ancient scripture, tools and everyday crafts. Next stop is at St. Bernardin Monastery, which is almost hidden in little bay. Locals still call it St. Euphemia Monastery and you will learn why there are two names of the monastery. A famous monk painter also left his collection here, because of his connections with this island. You will also visit a historic building with a church inside that was painted by the Venetians throughout the 17th and 18th century. Along the route discover the culture of the local population, seeing examples of historic crafts, sculptures, paintings, and an impressive book collection printed 50 years after the Guttenberg printing office opened in Germany.
Continue rolling by the sea onto gravel roads toward the road to the Frkanj peninsula. Travel 1.25 miles (approximately 2 kilometers) on gravel road through the Mediterranean woods and the other side of Frkanj peninsula, towards the open sea. Pause for a short break and refreshment at a beach before returning to historic Rab traveling along the promenade where this Yachting Land Adventure concludes.
