The Franciscans lived here from the 16th to the beginning of the 18th century during the Ottoman rule over these regions. In 1715 on the eve of the last Venetian and Ottoman war the friars left this island forever. Several years after the end of the Ottoman occupation they founded a monastery at Imotski. Blato represents a lake which is under water for most of the year and the other part is dry or swamp.

Blue Lake

Blue Lake is one of the most beautiful natural karst lakes in Croatia located near the town of Imotski. It lies in a deep pit that was probably formed by the collapse of a ventilated underground cave. The total depth from the upper edge is 220 meters and it varies depending on the season. Water levels could reach more than 90 meters in early spring when snow from nearby mountains melts. At the end of the summer, the lake could mystically disappear, so there is a fascinating football field at its bottom. The lake is a popular place for tourists and residents of the town of Imotski because it is very accessible. In addition there are trails that go almost to the bottom of the lake.

The depth of the sinkhole is around 500 meters, with a width of 450 meters. The diameter of the lake is approximately 200 meters and the depth is 290 meters. Unlike the Blue Lake, the Red Lake never dries out.

Topana Fortress

Topana Fortress is located above the city of Imotski, on steep cliffs between the Blue Lake and the soccer stadium, the so-called Gospin dolac. It is of irregular form, adapted to the natural shape of the cliff. Above the main entrance to the fortress there is a room which was once home to Father Stipan Vrljić, the first priest in Imotski. Immediately behind the entrance there also stands the small church of Our Lady of Angels – the patron saint of Imotski. The upper section of the fortress is older and probably built in the 14th century on the site of an earlier fortification. A 9th or 10th-century gable stone with an old Croatian wattle ornament was probably a part of this pre-existing fortification. Alongside the western and northern walls there are preserved residential spaces with water-wells. A part of a latrine is also preserved in the very southwestern corner, above the cliffs of the Blue Lake. From the late 15th century until 1717 Topana Fortress was the administrative seat of the Kadija of Imotski, or the Ottoman civil administrator and judge. The fortress was renovated and reinforced a few times over the course of the centuries, and its name Topana is of Turkish origin and it describes a place where cannons are kept.
