Hvar's main square, or , was wide and deep--several blocks long, in American terms. At the far end was the , a.k.a. .
As we walked closer to the Cathedral, guests were beginning to arrive for a wedding.
A string trio came across the Pjaca, headed for the church.
Little girls with baskets posed for photographs.
Meanwhile, daily life went on near the Cathedral--for example, at this supermarket on the north side of the square.
An electric delivery vehicle glided almost soundlessly through the car-free Pjaca.
A dog enjoyed the view from an outdoor café.
Just off the north side of the square, near several municipal
parking lots, food vendors displayed their wares in a covered market.
