The octagonal baptistery with a cupola (the only one preserved in Croatia) is today an integral part of the parish church; the church also features partly preserved frescoes from the same period. In the 12th century, the baptistery was converted into a church by the Benedictines and in the 18th and the 19th centuries naves and chapels were added to it.

The remains of the Benedictine church include the lintel (now kept at the Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments in Split) with an inscription by Master Radonja from the 12th century, as well as the Povlja Charter, written in Western Cyrillic script, from 1250 (the oldest charter written in that script in Croatia). Next to the church are the parts of the monastery and defence towers, restored in 1551 and 1559.
