  • Small Pieve with very simple and linear architectural features, is all fenced with a nice gate at the entrance. In fact, looking at the small main facade, you can only notice a tiny wrought-iron sail tower with a single Bell and a circular opening just above the front door .... For the rest .... , there is only to look at her !

  • Viewed from behind the fence, quite similar to many of the size of the churches that were built on the territory of Dalmatia. On the internet I found a description of JN-what at the beginning of the entry suggests that the church itself is a little further and is another building-I did not check this. The further part of the entry speaks of the church in the cemetery, which would agree with the building I saw-you'll be a tourist check it out-I'm willing to know how it is with this church. On the very coast, at the foot of the Bay of Saldun, there is a church, which by the locals is called SV. Tudor. The beginning of the church's construction dates back to the SIXTH W., when the cult of St. Theodora, the martyr and patron of the troops of Emperor Justinian, was very strong in Europe, and the holy Day was devoted to many churches in Dalmatia. At the cemetery chapel, located north of the church, there is a stone window that stylistically corresponds to late-ancient times. The existing church dates back to the later days, but during archaeological research, a layer of the old church was discovered beneath it. In the existing altar are built two fragments of marble altar plate, perfectly stony polished-decorated with braids. Since the uprising dates back to the early Middle Ages-from the NINTH to the beginning of the period, the creation of an older church can be placed in this time. From historical documents it is known that during this period on the Church of St. Theodora made many donations-the church authorities had many lands in the area of Trogir and it can be inferred that from the very beginning it was fully equipped with such "luxury" Church furniture. The exact date of construction of an existing church is unfortunately unknown. The first mentions of the church come from 1439, which is mentioned in the church and in the Diocese of Trogir, which had one estate and its manager. It was probably built at the beginning of this century, when the island of Čiovo was intensely inhabited and the first villages were erected on it. Based on the stylistic features of the façade, it is stated that it was renewed at the beginning of the 17th century, the Church of St. Theodora was the parish church of the village of Okrug Gornji somewhere until the mid-18th century and had his parish community. The first mention of the parish of St. Theodora came from 1579, the area around the church has been used as a cemetery since its inception until recently. In the inner wall of the church, to the left of the door, there is the oldest known grave with the engraved name and surname of the deceased-one Petra Užigovicia (Pietro Uzigovic) and the date of 1580, with a hoe, a hammer and a knife (for trimming branches), which Show what the deceased had dealt with in life. Above the main altar of the churches is an image which depicts the mother of God and the child, John the Baptist. Ivan Trogisrsky Patron of Trogir and St. Teodor is a work of an unknown master from the 18th century. St. Teodor is depicted in the military equipment, on horseback, while killing the dragon, underneath it you can see the panorama of Trogir, and in the background of the island Čiovo. On the side altar is the image of Christ's baptism, the work of Venetian painter Giovanni Francesca Fedrigazziego from the beginning of the 18th century.

  • Kostolik with a cemetery.

  • A small church with a well maintained cemetery. A bit of a surprise that it is on the beach and not on a hill.
