BRINJE, a small town in the north-eastern part of Lika, located in the karst basin of Brinjsko Polje, 32 km east of Senj, between the slopes of Velebit Mountain and Kapela Mountain.

On the hill above the town is the Sokolac castle, mentioned for the first time in 1343. The entrance to the fortified town leads through a square tower. The three-storey chapel of St. Mary with a Gothic portal is the best-preserved burg chapel in Croatia. On the Gothic vaults (arched ceilings) in the crypt and on the first floor are the sculptured coats of arms of the Frankopan and Gorjanski counts. Next to the burg, the Frankopan counts built a town, encircled by walls in the shape of an irregular hexagon with four semicircular towers and a bastion. After 1537, military government reconstructed and modified the town several times. The present-day parish church of St. Mary was built around 1700, on the location of a church from 1476; in the church is the tombstone of Matijaš Čubranić from 1511. On the nearby Gothic chapel of St. Vitus from the 15th century are the coats of arms of the counts Frankopan and Divinski.
