The area of Lovrecica was inhabited as early as Roman times, as evidenced by the remains of a patrician villa with the remains of mosaics, inscriptions, graves and an ancient cistern. According to some evidence, there was a tower in Lovrečica in the 15th century, but today unfortunately there is no trace of it. Lovrecica was named after its patron saint, St. Lawrence, who is one of the most famous Christian saints and martyrs. The beautiful astronomical phenomenon of Perseids, which adorns the sky every year at the time of his commemoration, in August, also bears his name - the tears of St. Lawrence.
