Mila

Why the name "MILA"?

Dedicated to Mila Gojsalić, a mythical figure from our Croatian history. In 1530, Ahmed Pasha, a Turkish fighter set out for Poljica. He set up camp in Podgrac in Gata, where Mila, a young villager from Kostanje in Zagora, was forcibly brought to him and raped. Mila slipped out of Pasha's tent during the night and pulled out a torch and entered the gunpowder tent. She set light to the gunpowder and it exploded killing all of the Pasha and most of the Turkish officers. Upon hearing the explosion, the people of Poljica attacked and defeated the Turks.


In memory of her heroic act, not far from the village of Gata, today there is a lookout point with a statue of this young heroine. She is rightly called Poljica's Joan of Arc. The impressive statue is the work of the world-famous Croatian artist Ivan Meštrović.
