A nice walk to find Hercules, after a long search finally found him! When arriving at the Hercules sign look on the rocks on your right.

Take the bus from supetar to splitska. Either walk down the hill into the village and then walk back up for the quarries on the hercules trail, or walk along the coast road, around the corner and off to the right sis the path. If you're looking for hercules, he's hidden. When entering the quarries he's on the bank of rock to the right of the olive tree.

We walked from Supetar to Splitska to see the quarries. Splitska was cute and had the quarry (Hercules) marked well. It's nothing epic by any means but it was fun to hike and it was a beautiful day when we walked it. Please wear sturdy shoes though, the pathea are stoney.

Either I was blind or the Relief of Hercules was hidden or very small but I could not see it there. The rather abandoned for long time path from Splitska centre clearly guided us to the place where we have seen some remaining stone walls, hips of stones. I have mixed feelings worthiness of walking 1.1 km up to the place from Splitska

The quarry is well worth a wander up to, very picturesque path - look out for bright greeny-blue lizards on the stone walls. I was immensely disappointed NOT to see a snake, and it wasn't for lack of looking!!! The carving of Hercules is quite weathered and to see him to full effect you should aim to be there midday-ish when the sun's angle will throw him into relief. We were the only two there one bright morning and it was a haven of peace and tranquility - a fitting memorial to all those poor slaves I reckon.

The walk is relatively boring, and very steep (certainly not suitable for elderly visitors). I think the quarry is hyped up a bit and there isn't much there. It is however something to do and relatively interesting for those who have an interest in quarrying or history.
I would advise driving up through Splitska to the main road and parking up, as the walk from the town is long.

Great job slaves on the stone relief. I loved stone chisel marks and was really evocative with a little imagination. Finding it was half the fun - tip is to follow the hornets!

A lovely morning visit is best as rather a steep path but worth while the plants give off a lovely aroma and we were the only ones there

A bit hidden in the woods is this ancient quarry. We loved it there. Imagine all those people havi g worked there so hard 2000 years ago! I was very excited about the scraping marks in the rock where they cut the stones.
