TUCEPI, a town in the littoral region of Makar-ska, 4 km southeast of Makarska. Chief occupations are farming and tourism. Situated on the main road (M2, E65). The town's marina is protected by the outer breakwater from the winds, and the utilizable part of the coast is 40 m long. The first settlement dates back to the ancient per-iod. Fragments of furniture from an early Christian church of the 5th and the 6th centuries were excavated on the graveyard as well as several mediaeval tombstones. The present name of the town was first mentioned in 1434. The church of St. George was built at the end of the 13th century, distinguished by a mixed Romanesque and Gothic style. The 18th-century noble families of Ivanisevic and Lucic-Pavlovic from Makarska had Baroque villas built by the sea; the summer mansion of the abbot Grubisic is today Hotel Kastelet. - The small Renaissance church of St. Michael and the church of St. Catherine can be visited in the hamlet of Pasalici.


BASKA VODA, a town and harbour on the Makarska littoral, 9.5 km northwest of Makarska. Economy is based on farming, fishing and tourism. Chief crops include olives, vines, sour cherries and figs. Forests and pebble beaches favoured an intensive development of tourism. The sea depth along the pier in the harbour reaches 7-11 m. Baska Voda is located on the main road, so-called Adriatic Highway (M2, E65) Split - Dubrovnik. The area was populated as early as antique times. On a plateau called Gradina, traces of a habitation and a late antique Byzantine fortification, perhaps Biston, have been found. On the southern side of the plateau, part of the fortification walls has been preserved, while several stelae from the 2nd to the 4th centuries have been found (now kept at the Archaeological Museum in Split). The late Baroque church of St. Lawrence was most probably built on an ancient locality. The parish church of St. Nicholas was built at the beginning of the 20th century; in 1991 a bell tower and the parsonage were added (Ante Rozic). The church features stained-glass windows by Josip Botteri-Dini and the paintings of the Way of the Cross by Josip Biffel (1989).
