Jurandvor was founded in the 16th century and consists of the settlements of Čubranići and Juranići (named after nobles). In the center of the place, in the Juranići part, there is Jurin dvor, after which the place was named. But the very beginnings of Jurandvor date back much earlier when the Glagolitic Benedictines came to these areas and built the St.Lucy monastery on the remains of a Roman villa.
