In the first half of the 18th century, a bell tower was built next to the church and together with the staircase belongs to the Baroque style.The stairway resembles the staircase of the Jesuit church in Dubrovnik. In the 15th century, there was a Gothic church in the same place, which was eventually rebuilt, and the Gothic pieces from that period can be seen in part in today’s church.
The church was built in 1742, thanks to the the landed gentry of that time, the Fioretti brothers, and the caretakers Vidali and Jaksa. The church was built in Gothic and Baroque style, has three altars, and today only one is used. On the main altar there is a picture depicting the martyrs: Saint Cyprian, Justina, Anthony of Padua and Nicholas.
