Porozina island CresPorozina is the name of the village and the ferry port on the west side of the island of Cres. Porozina island Cres, administratively, the settlement belongs to the town of Cres.

Today there is an old Porozina, built on the hill above the harbor and the new Porozina, a cottage settlement built in the last 20 years.

The resort is located in a bay in the north of the island. The bay is well protected from all the winds. So this place is the only place that has ever been suitable for the ferry docking.

On the hill above the pier, there was an ancient lighthouse at the time, and because of that, the locality got its name.(Pharum insulae).

Today, on that place, there are also ruins of the Franciscan monastery of St. Nicholas and Gothic Church from the 15th century.

The church was often plundering and almost burning down in the 16th century. The church is in great condition. There are also Glagolitic inscriptions. While the monastery buildings were abandoned in 1843 and partly demolished. The remains of the walls show the characteristics of Renaissance architecture.
