Starigrad, a town and small harbour on the coast of the Velebit Channel, not far from Velika Paklenica, 45 km south of Karlobag. Chief occupations are farming, livestock breeding, fishing and tourism. The harbour is partially protected from the bora and the sirocco. Smaller yachts can berth on the northern part of the pier (depth 2-5 m). Starigrad lies on the main road (M2, E65) Rijeka - Zadar.
Populated ever since the Roman period (Argyruntum). Emperor Tiberius chartered the town in AD 34-35, grating it the municipal rights; the town was then fortified. - The settlement was abandoned in the 16th c. due to the Turkish raids, to be re-established in the 17th century. The ruins of Vecka Tower, dating probably from the period of Turkish invasion, rise on Cape Kula. To the left of the Adriatic Main Road is the pre-Romanesque small church of St. Peter (when the church was built in the 11th and the 12th centuries, the ancient necropolis from the 1st and the 2nd centuries was discovered). There are about 20 stelae around, and three in the church.
