Ruins of the Gothic church
The relics of St. Nicholas Gothic church, built at the turn of the XIV and XV centuries. The temple, constructed initially about 1.8-2 km from the coast in the middle of the village, was destroyed by abrasive processes. The only preserved part of the church is the southern wall located at the top of the cliff. Several legends exist connected with the taking away of successive parts of the church by the sea. One of them tells the story of Zielenica - the sea-goddess - who was accidentally caught by fishermen and imprisoned by the local parish priest. Zielenica soon died of longing and was buried in the church cemetery. Since then, her father (Baltic) has sent wave after wave to retrieve his daughter's body and transfer it to its rightful place - the bottom of the sea.
