Lady of Loreto has been the saint patron of Primosten for almost two centuries, at the moment of this writing, 184 years precisely.
Of all the saints they could choose from, why did Primosten decide for her?
The story goes like this;
In its earliest days, Primosten was known as ‘Capocesto’ ( or ‘naked head’), a small islet close to the mainland. In the beginning, there was only a small church on the hill, Church of St. George, with a graveyard around it. At first, the place was mostly used as a temporary sanctuary from Turkish invaders.
