Roč was established in prehistoric times as a settlement. The fortification was built in the Middle Ages and was mentioned for the first time in a written document in 1064. From the 12th to 15th century Roč developed into an urban settlement. Until 20th century Roč was one of the most important Croatian literacy, printing and publishing centres-based on the oldest Croatian alphabet, called „glagoljica“. In Roč the first Croatian printed book Milas from 1483 was prepared for printing according Duke Novaks Missla from 1368, which has kept in Nugla at that time. Hence, in Roč Tourist office there is a replica of Gutenbergs printing press.
