The Church of St. George




The Church of St. George is located in Staro selo above Donja Vala. According to the preserved stylistic marks, its oldest part supposedly dates back to the 15th century. The church was first mentioned by Ottoman soldiers Osman Ağa (1621) and Nuh-ćehaja (1633), and the bishop from Makarska, Marijan Lišnjić (1672), mentions it in his report. The church was restored in 1772, and the Gothic vault in its nave has been preserved until today, while its apse is characterized by a barrel vault. On the main marble altar there is a statue of St. George. The church was again extended in 1887, and since 1976 it has been under state protection as a cultural monument. A plethora of interesting late antique finds have been preserved in the graves. You can see them exhibited in the City Museum.
