Many historical sites tell us about the settlement of this area. The remnants of a Roman villa in Ivinj date back to the 1st AD. The site was awarded the status of a protected cultural monument.
The parish church of St.Spirit's from 1548 was renewed in baroque style in 1640 and enlarged in 1840. The church tower was built in 1684 by the local architects. The church of Our Lady of Caravaggio is a votive church of the Italian family of Gelpis built at the beginning of the 18th century. Each year on 26 May, thousands of pilgrims come from all over the world.
The nearby area known as The Garden is host to a number of yearly electronic music festivals- such as Electric Elephant, Stopmakingsense and Soundwave- featuring an array of established House and Techno DJs .
