Pucisca is the port and the largest city on the N side of Brac. It is a place known for a tradition of stone masons, and stone of Brac has been used for the construction of the White House in Washington among others.
The name comes from Pucisca lat. puteus: wells as sources of salt water used to water livestock.
This deep bay, which penetrates more than 0.8 million in land, is divided, basically, in two zones: the valley of Pucisca at SWE and Stipanska luka, SE.
The port is located in the SW arm of the bay where the best location to anchor the dock is located in the main port. The platform of the N shore of the bay is used by coasters.
We can anchor in the arms of the bay, but it is relatively shallow and open to the Bora.

Pucisca est le port et la plus grande agglomération sur la côté N de Brac. C`est un lieu connu par une tradition des tailleurs de pierres, et la pierre de Brac a servi pour la construction de la Maison Blanche à Washington entre autres.
Le nom de Pucisca vient de lat. puteus: les puits, car des sources d'eau salée servaient à abreuver le bétail.
Cette profonde baie, qui pénètre sur plus de 0,8 M dans les terres, se divise, au fond, en 2 zones: le vallon de Pucisca, au SWE et la Stipanska luka, au SE.
Le port est situé dans le bras SW de la baie où le meilleur emplacement pour mouiller au quai se trouve dans la partie principale du port. Le quai de la rive N de la baie est utilisée par des caboteurs.
On peut mouiller dans le bras SE de la baie, mais il est relativement peu profond et ouvert à la Bora.
