settlement was abandoned in the 16th c. due to the Turkish raids, to be re-established in the 17th century. The ruins of Vecka Tower, dating probably from the period of
Turkish invasion, rise on Cape Kula. To the left of the Adriatic Main Road is the pre-Romanesque small church of St. Peter (when the church was built in the 11th and the
