Draga the Shepherdess
In ancient times, the young Kalifront kept the sheep of his father who was a friend of Barbat, lord of the eastern part of the island. The Barbat of today is named after him.
According to the legend, Barbat had a daughter, Draga. As she grew into a young woman, fate decided that she too would look after her father's sheep. Kalifront fell passionately in love with the girl and finally gave in to his madness. The girl warned him and said that she must not be with him, as her mother had pledged her to purity before the goddess Diana. Draga had to flee, and Kalifront went after her. He caught up with her outside the Loparska Jamina cave. The girl screamed and prayed to Diana for help.
Diana heard her prayer for help and turned her into a stone statue. The gods punished Kalifront by sentencing him to feed on forest fruits and to plant trees as long as the spring in the cave did not dry up. As the forest became thicker, so the hairs on Kalifront's skin became thicker, until he looked more like an animal than a man. In the end he became like the trees himself and merged into the forest.
Thus today the largest forest on Rab, as well as the peninsula, got the name Kalifront.
