DRNIŠ

Prosciutto, "bunja" and "suhozid"

Bunja is a stone-built shelter for occasional use by farmers and sheepherders who hide in them during bad weather. Bunja is usually circular in shape with a dome, and experts agree that most of them were built in the 19th century and in the first half of the 20th century. They are small, construction technique is very simple, and the material is completely natural. In addition to shelters, let’s mention the symbols of architecture of Dalmatia, the so-called „suhozidi“- dry stone walls, which are common in the Drniš area.

Drniš area is especially known for Drniš prosciutto. The special quality of Drniš prosciutto is the result of micro-climatic specificities of the area and the influence of the cold north wind, called “bura”.Traces of pig farming in Drniš date from about 1500 year B.C., and the first reliable data on the prosciutto production in this area are written in the Šibenik Statute in the 14th century.
