About the area



Vinišće is a small village located  in Split-Dalmatian County, close to Marina town and ancient city of Trogir. Located  in a secluded bay, Vinišće is proud of its great beaches, clear sea and untouched nature. It was first mentioned in documents back in 1272, but Illyrian structures and remains of Roman constructions, testify  it was inhabited even earlier. During the middle ages, the area was divided into a Diocese, the southern part along the sea, and Opatija – the northern inland part.

Vinišće  has several old churches; the church of the Blessed Virgin Mary (St. George) in Orihovica was established by the benedictions in 1272. Surrounding it is an old cemetery with stone sarcophagi. The Church of St. Antun Padovanski (Lady of Carmella) was built in the 18th century in Vinišće itself. The new parish church of The Heart of Jesus has a painting from an unknown painter from the 9th century. The church of St. Ivan on the Ploče cape was built in 1332 according to the legend where the Blessed Ivan Trogir miraculously saved sailors from Šibenik.



Several beautiful bays well known for their attractive beaches are: Voluja, Ričevo Vrelo, Stari Trogir, Sićenica.
