A romantic view is waiting in the village. You can see benches and lampposts made of limestone, which are unique on the island. The name of the village comes from the Latin word puteus=pot, which meant the salty-sweet (bočata) founts used for drinking-trough. The recent village with the specific stone roofs was developed around the castle of Caprijano Žuvetić (1467) and other towers.13 towers were built, and because of this, Pučišće was called „Luka-kula" (Port of Towers). Here is the most known stonemason school of Croatia and the marble mine of the island. The marble of Brač can be find in the White House of Washington, the parliament in Vienna and Budapest, the Reichstag in Berlin, and the castle of Diocletianus (Split) which was built 1700 years ago.
