The town of Pag has a rich folklore heritage. The Pag folk costume is of beautiful colors and shapes, and the ladies' head cover hemmed with Pag lace is particularly attractive. Pag lace is the most beautiful autochthonous souvenir – it is made by sewing and used as an independent ornament or part of clothing.

This tower is commonly known as the Town's Tower. This is the only one remaining of the original nine towers. It was built in the 15th century, and was used as a fortress on the northwest end of the town. Levelling the ground around the Tower shortened its height by 2 - 3 meters. The sea once lapped at its most protruding part, while the cannons protruded from slots on the front.

On the spot of today's headquarters of the city government, there used to be an octagonal tower named Kamerlengo, up to 1905. Its mighty construction protected the westerly, sea entrance to the town. Right beside it, at its southern part, there was the town's record office that burnt down together with the tower in 1905.
