The history of this town is unique even by Mediterranean standards. The combination of nature, monuments and location make Rogoznica unlike any other place in the region. The first recorded settlers made this area as their own in 1390 although historians and archaeologists believe it to be older. A testament to this is the St. Nicolaus Church, located in the bay of Lozica northwest of the peninsula. It dates to the beginning of the 14th century although it is believed to be older.

Inside the cathedral, there are many works of art dating back to the 14th century. The last church to visit also has both a legend and a cultural celebration tied to it. Legend has it that a fisherman found a painting of Virgin Mary in Cape Gradina, 2.4 km away from Rogoznica, and took the picture home multiple times yet, every time it mysteriously returned to its original rock. Then in 1776 the villagers and priest decided to build a church in place of the rock as a home for the painting. The ceremony was established the same year. The annual 2-day celebration Folk Feast Our Lady of the Chapel is held on July 2nd and July 3rd, Folk Feast Our Lady of the Chapel. The two-day celebration is the transport of the painting to and from its original resting place led and followed by priests and believers alike.
