Kumpanija sword dance and cultural program

Čara has preserved the sword dance Kumpanija, which is performed on July the 25th on the feast of St. Jacob.

The tradition of singing Dalmatian popular folk songs has also been preserved.

Old customs have been preserved in the village, among the best known being the sword battle “Kumpanija” as well as the ancient dances performed by young men and girls.

The Church of Our Lady in the Field lies in the beautiful Field of Čara on the way to the bay of Zavalatica. It was built in 1329 and reconstructed in the 17th century.
Christians from all over the island go on pilgrimage to this church for two Catholic feasts: July 25th, the feast of Saint Jacob the protector of Čara, and for the feast of Mala Gospa, on September 8th. A young shepherdess from Čara had a vision of the Our Lady in the bay of Čavića Luka on July the 25th, 1686.
