Several early Christian graves and remaining architectonic fragments were found in the narthex of the church and in the surrounding area.

The place was founded in the Middle Ages, but during the period of Turkish agression, in the 16th century, the inhabitants found safety on the nearby island of Prvić, where they established the settlement of Šepurine.
