Bribir

Bribir

It is located 14 kilometres northwest of Skradin. The discovered archaeological findings on this area can be continually traced back from the late Bronze Age, through Antiquity, the medieval times to the Modern Age. During the reign of the Šubićs the St John Church and a Franciscan monastery with the church of St Mary were built, where Banus Šubić and his family were buried. Bribir was of strategic importance in the middle ages as it controlled, together with the Ostrovica fortress, the important road from Knin to Zadar. This locality enjoys a top category protection status on account of the several archaeological and historical layers.
