Novigrad was built on a small island that was connected to the mainland in 18th century. It has maintained its medieval structure up to the present day. The three-named parish church of St. Mary, St. Maximilian and St. Pelagius has preserved its characteristics of the Romanesque and fragments of early Christian basilica despite the prevailing baroque influence (1745-1775). The church of St. Agatha in a 10th century graveyard is an example of three-apse Romanesque sacral architecture, and the Church of St. Anthony was built during the Gothic period and renovated in 17th century.
