The word „nona“literally means „granny“, but is often used to describe a good-hearted senior woman in Dalmatia. With their age come a lot of difficulties with health and mobility, but have no doubts, many of these women have a soul of a bird. Thanks to pollution-free environment and life filled with physical work, some of them are close to hundredth birthday. Full of tales depicting times long gone, not to mention old recipes for Dalmatian delicacies, these women are a true gem to other inhabitants.
