Archaeological site Ivinj
Ivinj near Tisno is the first village you will see on the way to Murter Island. Ivinj is a mainland settlement belonging to the Municipality of Tisno. For anyone interested in history this is a must-see. Here, by the sea, lies the oldest stone of the historical heritage of Tisno, a Roman villa rustica from the 2nd to 3rd century. Furthermore, you can see the Romanesque Church of St. Martin from the end of the 11th century. An early Christian basilica with three naves, built in the mid-5th century, and traces of medieval graves were discovered close by. Due to the number and variety of embossed details, the necropolis in Ivinje is one of the richest necropoles of this type in Croatia. Findings from this archaeological site are exhibited at the Atrium of the Katunarić Palace. It is difficult to even imagine the Ottoman hordes occupying, setting fire to, and razing this sacred place to the ground.
