St. Jerome’s Church and Hermitage

This small seaside church was built in the 13th century, and in 1529 an oratorio for nuns was added. On the church façade is a Rosetta with a four-leaf clover opening, a Roman relief of St. Jerome, and an inscription in Venetian dialect warning those about to enter to make peace with God and their loved ones. A contemporary art gallery has been active in the church since 1976. The Hermitage, a building opposite the church, was originally intended as accommodation for hermit friars, the Glagolitic priests. During the 17th century it served as lodging for travellers
