Igrane is a village in Croatia, around 19 km south from Makarska. It has about 420 inhabitants.[1]

At the highest point of the village is the "Kula Zale" tower - named after Ivan Anticic, and built during the 17th century as a protection against Turks. The Pre-Romanesque church of St. Michael (Sveti Mihovil), dating from the 11th century, dominates the village.

Tourism and agriculture are the main sources of income for the inhabitants.
