Starigrad-Paklenica - Cultural Heritage :
 
Starigrad Paklenica has been inhabited since Roman times, but because of attacks by the Turks, it was abandoned in the 16th century, and then re-established in the 17th century. Close by, there is the small, pre-Romanesque church of Saint Peter and the ruins of Večka Tower, probably built during the Ottoman period. In recent excavations at the Roman necropolis, which has over 100 graves, various beautiful glass objects were found preserved. In the nearby Rovanjska inlet, there is the old Croatian Church of Saint George.
 
Situated on the very tip of a cape with the most stunning of the Starigrad beaches, the "Kulina", on the edge of Večko polje (Večka Field). It was likely built as a watchtower in the late Middle Ages (14th to 16th century). However, according to the legend of King Pasoglav (King Dogshead), the tower was a royal court.

St Peter’s Church, medieval church situated on the Adriatic highway between Starigrad and Seline. In the vicinity, there is a graveyard dating back to the mid-13th century. Its eye-catching tombstones, made from hefty stone slabs, are still standing, sometimes decorated with simple, shallow relief forms from the period between the 14th and 16th centuries.

The church was built in the pre-Romanesque, old Croatian style, probably at the turn of the 10th century. Near the church, there is also a small building, which was probably used as a baptistery. From the fragments, we are led to believe that the church was built with the help of the votive gift of a benefactress, as was the case with the construction of churches and chapels in the old Croatian period.’ – Rukavina, A., Zvona ispod zvijezda (A bell under the stars), ‘Ličke župe’, Gospić, 1984.
Over the past few years, archaeological research has been carried out at the site, which will certainly lead to new discoveries about the church.
