Ovo je bunar dalmatinskog seoskog tipa, načinjen u stara vremena. Za gradnju je bila iskorištena jedna udubina na kamenoj hridi, kao the prirodni oblik tla. Spremnik za vodu napravljen je u kamenu. On je nadkriven s najskromijom dopremom okolnog kamenja. Jedan rubni dio bunara, vidi se na slici, sazidan je u obliku ljevkastog zida. Uokolo dna kamenog kruništa postoje prirodne ili vještačke rupe, radi utjecanja kišnice. Kao što se vidi, čatrnja nema krunu radi lakšeg izvlačenja vode, s kositrenom kantom vezanom za čvrsti konop. Može se reći da je čatrnja bunar u kamenoj jami. Posjedovati čatrnju, značilo je nekada imati ne potrošno bogatstvo, već uvjete za preživljavanje i život..

Podrijetlo riječi "čatrnja" je nepouzdano, ali se nalazi na području današnjih i poviestnih hrvatskih pokrajina, Dalmacije, Like, Korduna, Banovine, Hercegovine, te zapadne i sjeverne Bosne..

U vrieme ljetnih sparina, pravi je užitak napiti se ledeno hladne i mekane kišne vode. Napiti se zdrave vode sa čatrnje, znači vratiti tielu svježinu prirode, te obnoviti sjećanja na vješte ruke naših predaka.

This is a well of a Dalmatian village type, made ​​in the old days. For the building was used a recess in the stone cliff, as the natural form of the soil. The water tank is made of stone. He is under roof with a minimum delivery of the surrounding rocks. One edge of the wells, can be seen in the picture, was built in the shape of a funnel-shaped wall. Around the stone battlements are natural or artificial holes, in order to influence rainwater. As you can see, the čatrnja has no crown for easier extraction of water with a tin bucket attached to a solid rope. It can be said that the čatrnja is a stone fountain in the pit. Owning a čatrnja, it once meant, have not consumable wealth, but rather the conditions for survival and life..

The origin of the word "čatrnja" is unreliable, but has presence on the ground of today and the historic Croatian provinces, Dalmatia, Lika, Kordun, Banovina, Herzegovina, western and northern Bosnia..

During the summer heat, it is a real pleasure to drink very cold and a soft rainwater. To drink a healthy water from a čatrnja, means to return the body the freshness of nature and enrich the memory of the skilled hands of our ancestors.

Thank you for the information Zlato...clean water is worth more than gold and even more in the future. {L+YS}
