The Romans built a port near the present Bernardine. In the 15th century, a church and a monastery were built on the shelf of the hill and were dedicated to St. Bernard of Siena. The church dominated the salt pans, fertile olive groves and fishing grounds. The church structure was pointedly pointed, the bell tower was built in Venetian style. The monastery building contained workshops, bedrooms and cellulars. Monastery with the Church of Sv. Bernardin was dissolved in 1806 by the Austrian Monarchy. In 1839 the Austrian army turned the monastery into a fortress to defend the bay. Today, there is a bell tower standing about 26 meters high in this area. In 2002, the presbytery of the church and the outside of the bell tower were renovated and restored. In 1923, the Italians built a seaplane airport in the Bernardin area.
