Cultular and architectural monuments of Sumpetar will probably catch the attention of history aficionados. The settlement, known as Narestae, existed in ancient Roman times already. Today's name was received after the foundation of a Benedictine monastery in the 11th c. by Petar Crni Gumajski - the monastery was dedicated to St. Peter, hence Sumpetar. A charter issued in 1105 and known as the "Sumpetarski kartular" is an important historical source. The area in the middle ages was known as the Republic of Poljica, Sumpetar preserved one church from this era: the Sustipan (St. Stephen's) church can be found in the settlement's cemetery.
