Bibendum
The renowned sculptor Meštrovic (1883-1962) had this neo-Classical villa built beginning in 1931. He moved into the villa in 1939 but only lived there for two years, before fleeing the Italian occupation. The gardens are dotted with sculptures, but the finest are indoors. Although the artist is known for his monumental works, the villa shows another more intimate side to his work. On the groundfloor are various pieta and upstairs look out for the Woman in pain (1928) and above all Job (1946) whose face is disfigured by pain.
