The church of St Peter on the peak near Gabonjin was originally a Medieval church, dated into the 13th/14th century. Already in the 15th century, the Venetian provveditore Antun Vinciguerra stated that the church was demolished and that he would give it to the Dobrinj parish to take care of it. At the end of the 19th century, the people of Gabonjin restored, expanded and blessed the church.

Typologically, the church belongs to the circle of Dobrinj sacral structures built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. This is a monumental longitudinal building with a rectangular apse on the east. The western façade has a distaff and a series of stone stairs leading to the roof.

The church was built at the site of the prehistorical building, and the area around it is today the archaeological zone. Its geographic position, the hill it is located at, certainly makes it monumental. Although there is a new church built in the village Gabonjin, the church of St Peter on the hill is still the most representative sacral edifice in the area.
