Statue of Don Ivan Šarić
During the Italian bombing of Primošten, in 1942, the most important role in saving the locals was played by Don Ivan Šarić. He shielded the women and children of Primošten, thus protecting and saving them from Italian commanders. As a sign of gratitude for rescuing them from certain death, the people of Primošten declared 16 November 1942 the day of salvation. In 1944, when Don Ivan Šarić died, new attacks occurred. He died a hero, saving innocent people. He was loved and adored by people because of his noble soul and pure heart. In 1991 a monument dedicated to Don Ivan Šarić was erected in front of the church of St. Roch, and this square was named after him.
