Church of St. Rocco
The Church of St. Rocco is one of the many landmarks that adorn Biograd na Moru. It was built in the late 16th or early 17th century in honour of St. Rocco, the patron against the plague. This modestly decorated church has two side windows and a bell tower in the form of a distaff. The church’s interior is dominated by a gilded Baroque altar which dates back to the 18th century. By the mid 20th century, the church was enclosed by walls which contained several fragments of pre-Romanesque stone engravings. This church, which is property of St. Rocco’s fraternity, was first mentioned in a testament written in 1653, in which Franica, the wife of John the Senjanin, donates olive crops to St. Rocco’s Church.
