Archaeological site Smratina


In the settlement of Smratina, seven years ago, a systematic research of the archeological site began, where an early Christian or late antique church from the first half of the 6th century was found, and a later early Romanesque church from the 11th or 12th century was built in it. Two churches in one is a special feature of this archeological site, as well as a unique find in Croatian archeology on the pilasters of the fence of the sanctuary signed by a certain Marcilianus. This site in Smratina with the findings of a church and grave remains testifies to the continuity of life on the island of Vir and the existence of an urban island settlement in late antiquity, ie it is the oldest find of an urban settlement excluding existing remains of Liburnian culture.
