Photographer's Note

A medieval church of St. Peter situated on the Adriatic highway between Starigrad and Seline. In the vicinity, there is a graveyard dating back to the mid-13th century. Its eye-catching tombstones, made from hefty stone slabs, are still standing, sometimes decorated with simple, shallow relief forms from the period between the 14th and 16th centuries.

The church was built in the pre-Romanesque, old Croatian style, probably at the turn of the 10th century. Near the church, there is also a small building, which was probably used as a baptistery. ‘From the fragments, we are led to believe that the church was built with the help of the votive gift of a benefactress, as was the case with the construction of churches and chapels in the old Croatian period.’ – Rukavina, A., Zvona ispod zvijezda (A bell under the stars), ‘Ličke župe’, Gospić, 1984.
