According to known information, Koženjak Hill used to be a citadel during the Iron Age, and continued its life in Late Antiquity by being repurposed into a lookout point or a small castrum (fort). Researchers believe that a pre-Romanesque church was built at the site in early Middle Ages. Today there are no visible architectural remains, but the assumption is corroborated by two paragraphs of a pre-Romanesque pluteus found at the very top of the hill. In addition to the aforementioned, Koženjak has an excellent geographic position, source of drinking water and arable field in its foot, as well as view of all the sea routes. It is also a hill possible to defend, has visual contact with other Liburnian citadels, and it is located close to the sea, i.e. Magrovica Bay (Megarus). On the slopes of the citadel there are visible remains of drywalls, and smaller fragments of prehistoric and Byzantine ceramics. At the very top of the hill, under a plate (cliff) there is a notch, a smaller cave, which is still unexplored.
The site is easily accessible by a walking trail starting at the terrestrial entrance of the Nature Park – Dolac.
