Plame

The name of the village reflects its strategic position, as ‘Gdinj’ is derived from the verb ‘bditi’, which means ‘to watch over’ ‘be on watch’, or ‘guard’,  Around the settlement are many Bronze Age tumuli (ancient grave mounds) named collectively ‘Vela gomila’ (‘Large Mounds’), which are indeed big. The village consists of eight scattered little hamlets, of which one, called ‘na Planama’ was mentioned in the Hvar Statute as early as the 14th century, and gave the name ‘Plame’, meaning ‘burning bright’, to the whole eastern end of Hvar Island.
