NameEdit

The settlement's name is likely derived from cale, a Celtic word for port.[2]

AttractionsEdit

Kali is a fishing town[3] with a Mediterranean feeling. The old central part of the town was founded on a hillock around St. Lovre's (St. Lawrence) Church, the patron saint of the town. The famed fishermen's festival takes place under the saint's auspices every year in August.
