Gradac is the southernmost touristic locality of the Makarska Riviera in southern Dalmatia, Croatia, located between Makarska and Ploce. It is about 40 kilometers distant from Makarska, situated halfway between Split and Dubrovnik.


The southern part of Makarska Riviera which stretches from Drvenik to Gradac is situated beneath the steep slopes of Biokovo, with beautiful pebble beaches.

One of the oldest existing edifices in the territory of Gradac is the chapel of St.Pasquale on the Mt. Plana, with a barrel shaped vault, and a saddle roof.

Next to the old parish church of St. Antonio there is a local cemetery and the new parish church of St. Michael built in 1852, precisely in the zone of Gradina, the ancient Roman locality. In the church, there are three marble altars with statues. The most interesting among them is the old wooden statue of St. Rocco. Yin the church there is also the old baptismal stone font, originating probably from the old church.
