Historically, Dol has a long past. The name Dol, however, is relatively recent, being first mentioned under that name in the twelfth century. The first archaeological finds and settlement in the Dol area date form the fourth century B.C when Greek colonists first settled on Hvar Island. Historians have suggested that Dol became a Greek and nearby Old Pitve an Illyrian centre, the two oldest settelments on the island. From the immediate vicinity of Dol remains of cyclopean walls have been found, suggesting again that ist geographical location was advantageous. From its open mountain position the early Greek colonists had a safe refuge with clear views of the sea and plain below, they remained ther until they built the fortified town (polis) at Faros, persent-day Stari Grad. Five hundred years of Roman rules also left ist mark; evidence of reference to "villae rusticae" in epigraphs have been found together with some coinage. Legend has it also that the fames Illyrian queen, Teuta, has a residence in Dol but this remains clouded in confusion and conjecture (Ivica Moskatelo, 2011).

NB - The village of Dol today consists of two parts: Dol Sv. Marije (Dol of St. Mary) and Dol Sv. Barbare (Dol of St. Barbara). They are separated by a small low hill where there is the Newly-built church of Sv. Mihovil (St.Michael), containing a 17th century painting. In Dol of St. Mary, there is the church of Sv. Petar (St. Peter) with a new bell-tower. So it looks like that the old settlements of Sv Petar and Sv Barbare are actually part of today's Dol
