The history of this Dalmatian place goes far back in the past. It was first mentioned in 1298 when it belonged to the noblemen from Bribir - the Subic family and later it became the property of the Sibenik Diocese and some noblemen from Sibenik.
The settlement itself was founded in the 15th ct. by the refugees who fled from the Turks. Nevertheless, this area was inhabited many centuries earlier than that which can be proved by the remnants of the Roman settlements found on the islet of St.Stephen. Many other historical monuments tell us about the gradual settlement and development of this place. There are, for example, defence walls from 1505, St.George's church built in 1506 and renewed in baroque style in the 17th ct., gothic sarcophagus with the relief from 1447 in the chapel on the local graveyard and the remnants of the Franciscan monastery from 1511.
