The village of Ričice (near Imotski) has been settled in the late 14th and early 15th century, when it consisted of only few houses. Neither residential nor farming buildings from that period have been preserved till today. The oldest, only partially preserved houses date from the late 18th century, and they are not in use any more. These houses have only the ground floor which is partially dug in the ground. They consist of one room with an open fireplace and an attic. A more developed type has the first floor - the cattle was kept in the ground floor, while people lived in the first floor. Sometimes the fireplace was in the attic. The tradition of using the slope has survived till today - it has always made the direct entrance at the back of the house possible. Therefore, houses with sular, which are characteristic for our coast and islands, are quite rare here. In the course of the 19th and 20th centuries, the house ground-plan has developed even more, most commonly as a result of the family-communities falling apart. Nucleus families are not given a bigger place to live in - they all stay under the same roof, only separated. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, farming buildings have separated from residential buildings and thus we get a new group of buildings situated away from the house - pojate and guvna. Near houses there are corn-breads {šaloši), and the ground floor is most usually used as the vine-cellar (konoba) or rarely as a cowshed. A village is made up of more straggling hamlets (komšiluk), which is characteristic for the Dinaric area. But at the same time, here in the hinterland of Dalmatia, a Mediterranean influence can be felt - a typical local house has united both Dinaric and Adriatic elements in itself.
