Racic Mausoleum

Racic MausoleumThe mausoleum is the final resting place of the prominent Cavtat shipping family, Racic, and is located in the graveyard of St. Rok. The mausoleum itself was erected in 1921, but the Chapel of St. Rok dates from the 15th century.

The structure of the mausoleum is architectural notable itself because "The entire structure was built without a single piece of wood, or any other material except bronze, of which the door and bell were made."

A bronze bell in the cupola bears the inscription "Know the mystery of love and though shalt solve the mystery of death and believe that life is eternal." The interior of the mausoleum contains reliefs depicting the stages of life.
