Križice

Category: cultural heritage GPS: LAT: 43.6086490005 / LONG 16.6001319978

The place is already mentioned in the Middle Ages, and it was named after the nearby intersection of roads, namely bivium - the place where the Roman road separated. One led to Sinj (ancient Osinium) and Čitluk (Roman colony Aequum, founded by Emperor Claudius for its veterans), and the other led to Gardun (Roman Tilurium) where there was a camp of the Roman VII legion. In the large field on the north side of Križice lays Dicmo, whose name originates from the Latin phrase for the tenth milestone from Salona - Ad decimum milliarium.

At this place, ruts of Roman wagons are also partly visible, and a large water tank, built into a stone crevice just north of the road in a way that the crevice was closed and vaulted without mortar.

Farther south, in Vučipolje, during the construction of the highway the remains of  Roman residential and farm building and late ancient tomb were explored.
