From the 14th century the island of Kornat had several names: Insula Sancte Marie, Stomorian island, Tarac, Toreta etc. In the 17th century the archipelago got name Kornati.

The Kornati islands were populated as early as the neolitic, in recent times there are no permanent habitations, the last of them was mentioned in 18th century under the name Toreta. The oldest archeological finds on the islands of Kornat are the remains of Illyrian settlements (Strazišce, Toreta) and stone grave-mounds.

The remains from Roman times have been found on the hill Toreta, at the foot of the hill, on the southern side are remains o fan early Christian church with a semicircular apse.
