This scattered settlement, composed of several smaller places, is located in the southern Velebit foothills. The local population is mainly engaged in olive growing, animal husbandry, tourism and fishing. Among the sights there are the church of St. George in Rovanjska from the ninth century, and next to it a medieval cemetery with tombstones, then the church of St. Jerome in Jasenice from the 19th century, and the church of St. Frane in Velebit. Unfortunately, the place is known for the massive massacre of the local elderly population during the Serbian aggression in 1991. Visitors will surely be interested in the 24 km long historic road, known as the Master Road, which is a unique mountain road that offers beautiful panoramic views and views of the rocks, Zadar archipelago and hinterland, which can be ridden, photographed and generally enjoy nature.

The churches, a medieval cemetery with tombstones are some of the sights to behold during a trip here. I had come to witness the 24 km long historic road, of which i did. During my walk on this road, i loved the beautiful panoramic views of the rocks surrounding it.

I enjoyed walking on the historic road. I was able to see various natural features. There are also a number of churches within this place. The most popular is the St. Jerome. It is a perfect place to enjoy nature.

The place is rocky and with the right gear we went rock climbing. We enjoyed panoramic views of the sea and the landscape from the point and loved the thrilling experience of rock climbing. Unforgettable moments to remember.
