Welcome to House Erika, Porozina island Cres
House Erika is in the coastal village of Porozina, 25km from Cres town.
Porozina is a small port town in Croatia, located on the northwest coast of Cres. It is connected by ferry to Brestova on the Istria mainland.
The old town is situated upon a hillock above the port, and in the last two decades, a new holiday neighborhood has been built.
In the Classical era, there was a lighthouse on the hillock above the port, that is how the town got its name.
On this site today we find ruins of an old Franciscan monastery of Saint Nicholas and an old Gothic church, dating to the 15th century. The monastery was used by Franciscan Glagolitic monks of the third order, who managed to preserve Old Church Slavonic as a liturgy language even up to the 13th century. The monastery edifice was abandoned in 1843 when it was also partly demolished. Its ruins manifest characteristics of the renaissance architecture.
The island of Cres has the richest vegetation in the Adriatic, also Cres has its very own fresh water lake, which is very highly guarded and illegal to swim and fish in. It supplies water to neighboring Losinj as well. It is one of the deepest freshwater lakes in Eastern Europe, going down 76 meters at its deepest point (>50 m below sea-level).
