The church was probably built for the same purpose as the church of St. George in the countryside (15th or 16th c.) Archeological preliminary research of the area around Pirovac District resulted in discovering numerous sites from different periods of human history but only some of those research have been finished. However, it is estimated that on the egde of the Pirovac bay there have been found some columns in the sea which witness the existance of the roman salt works and following structures. Besides the olive- growing and wine- growing in this area, this testifies the existance of an organized agriculture on this area. Moreover, half of the century ago, the scientists have discovered an exceptional curative mud on this area, which raises the possibility for health tourism. On the east side of the church there are graves with engraved symbols which testify that those are the graves of the knights.
