The Jakša-Andreučić House on Munjac

  View photo gallery

This fortified residential and commercial complex with a tower, located in the area of Munjac, belonged to the Croatian noble family Jakša in the 16th century and was later owned by the Andreučić family.

The Jakšas are among the oldest noble families in Croatia and were mentioned on Vis already in the mid-15th century. The complex was renovated during the late 17th and early 18th century when the tower was expanded by one storey and rounded off with a loggia opened by corner pilasters topped by a four-sloped roof, and a corner turret was constructed on the level of the second floor. In the second half of the 18th century, it was completed with the construction of a complex of double houses with gables turned towards the square.

Throughout history, public wells played an important role in the life of the town. The public well on Munjac was mentioned in the second half of the 18th century and was in function all the way up to the mid-20th century. The original crown of the well has not been preserved.
