Primosten church attractions
The church of St. George was mentioned for the first time in the 17th century.
It was upgraded several times in the period from the 18th to the 20th century. The biggest upgrade happened in 1760. That's why it is mostly a Baroque monument.
The two most important ceremonies celebrated in the church are the Feast of Our Lady of Loreto, celebrated on May 10, and the Feast of St. George, celebrated on April 23.
These celebrations include a rich spiritual and cultural program, with a procession around the town.
