BROTHERS CRNOMIRI

In Čara, opposite the parish church of Saint Peter in the middle of the village, on the road, there is a monument to the brothers Crnomiri. Under the leadership of Petar Crnomir, they offered resistance to the Venetian duke, who was extorting tribute in the 11th century. The duke captured and executed Petar, but the brothers and the whole village rose up, defeated the duke's soldiers and killed the duke as an evil-doer. This legend has survived for centuries and lives still in the minds of peasants from Čara.
