Vepric has a similar appearance as a famous French place of pilgrimage since it is located in a natural cave, surrounded by mountain with a nearby creek. The shrine attracts many pilgrims, as well as those visitors who just want to see its unique beauty. One of the most important pilgrimages to the Makarska inland is just about to come, on The Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary that is also celebrated all across Croatia.
