Sv Marije Island is considered the jewel in the crown of Mljet National Park on Mljet Island, famous for the 12th century Benedictine Monastery of Saint Mary. However, the island was occupied long before the Benedictines arrived, as evidenced by the Roman ruins found both here and in Polače.
Most people who visit Sv Marije come to see the church, have a drink at the restaurant and swim in the clear waters of Malo jezro. Few people explore the ancient Roman ruins found near the top.
