Sali - Cultural Heritage:
 
Among sacral monuments the most important is a parish church “Uznesenje BDM” in Sali. In the church collection of monuments there are two fragments of stone plastic decorated with threefold braids. These two fragments are part of the same baluster that is secondarily used as a gravestone. This church was pulled down 1465 and a larger one was erected.
The monumental wooden high altar dates back to the 17th century and has a Baroque relief panel with two subsequently inserted early Renaissance pictures that are actually parts of destroyed polyptych. 
Other churches are St. Roko from 1644, chapel “Mala Gospa” on the port entrance (cape Bluda) and St. Nicholas.
 
- St. Nikola´s church

There is further a range of other ones belonging to mostly pre-Romanesque period, but of which only foundations remained, such as St. Victor on Citorij, St. John in Stivanje polje and from the early Christian period: Crkvina or St. Luke on the position of Čuh and remnants of a smaller church on the hill of Koženjak.
 
Church of St. John appeared very early in documents. Its oldest monument dates back to 1064 or 1065, when the church was mentioned under the name cela Sancti Iohannis.

Based on found remnants of architecture and stone plastic, Petricioli estimates that the church was build partly on ruins of a Roman construction and dates back to the pre-Romanesque period (9th century). However, in more recent studies there are conclusions that it originates from earlier period, dating back to the 5th or 6th century. Its continuity went through pre-Romanesque period, which is confirmed by discovered remnants of stone plastic dated from that time. The church existed also in Romanesque and Gothic period, which is confirmed by written documents and discovered fragment of Roman console.
