Entering Jelsa by road one passes through the alley of poplars that leads into the town park of lush vegetation, which is a certain surprise and very much a rarity in a distinctly stony area.

characteristics in its urban and architectural sense. However, one gradually
discovers later on that it is an old town with a history
dating back to ancient times.
