Reason #74: St. Anthony will make sure you don’t get lost in the woods
St. Anthony of Padua, patron saint of lost stuff and people.
Catholics are into their saints, as you might already know. And Mary, of course.
On Brač that means that you will often find chapels and altars such as this one. Most of the time they’re built spontaneously by people. Either on their property, or just along paths and roads.
This one of Saint Anthony is one of my favorites. It’s so DIY and imperfect, yet so organic and fits in perfectly.
If anyone local is reading this and knows who built it, please let me know. Thanks!
