History and monuments Sv. Filip i Jakov

On the area of the present town of Sv. Filip i Jakov, in ancient history, almost three centuries ago, there was a small Liburnian settlement whose ruins can still be seen in dry walls and grave-mounds that contained archaeological finds kept nowadays in the Biograd Museum. After the arrival of Romans in the 1st century, landed estates and country mansions were built for veteran Roman soldiers, so the ruins of these buildings can still be found in hinterland not far from the church of Sv. Roko, as well as in the coastal area in the direction of Biograd. Today, the ruins can be seen at the location called “Kapelica” and opposite to Sv. Filip i Jakov, on the island of Frmić we have the remains of a Roman cistern from late antiquity. After the arrival of Croats this area gained in value because of the vicinity of the royal town of Biograd that also had estates in the hinterland of Sv. Filip i Jakov. Thus, around the present church of Sv. Roko there was a village called Rogovo and today; here is also the already mentioned church from the 11th century and ruins of a citadel known to us as Dvorine. Today's old town centre developed in the 16th and for the most part in the 17th century. Upon entering the old town centre one can immediately notice a 17th century Kaštel (citadel) with engraved coat of arms of an abbot from Rogovo ifrom the 15th century. The church of Sv. Mihovil was mentioned already in the 16th century but was destroyed by Turks and thus in 1707 today's church with a beautiful bell tower was erected.
