The Church of St. Roch
A valuable cultural monument is located at the gates of Staro Selo – it is the church dedicated to St. Špiridijon and Our Lady of Mercy. This small church was first mentioned in 1553, and later expanded. There was a cemetery near it, so, naturally, prayers for the dead and the mass were held in the church. In 1680 the church was expanded and consecrated (once again), but this time it was dedicated to St. Roch as a sign of gratitude for liberation from the plague. On 16 August the feast of St. Roch is celebrated. That is when morning and evening Mass is held and the faithful pray for protection from all diseases. In front of the church there is a monument erected in honour of priest Ivan Šarić.
