This Temple is small and intimate, but it is in amazing shape and the ceiling is so beautiful. A friend of mine from Split was baptized in the baptistry in this temple. How cool is that!!

Worth the 10Kn entrance. Only small, but very atmospheric. Amazing bit of pure Roman architecture, in particular the barrel vault roof.

As an enthusiastic reader of ancient history I would recommend this place to everyone with the same habit. There's not much to do here but have a look at the ruins. It must be seen when visiting Split.

Listed as the Temple of Jupiter but only because of it's history. It has been a Catholic church for a very long time now. Would be more interesting to see if it were still a temple of jupiter....

Not much except a sarcophagus or 2 but a room dedicated to Jupiter is part of the palace complex.

Disappointing compared to other spots. Nice stonework, but not much else and quite small.

When we bought our tickets to see the Cathedral of St. Domnius, we were told that for a small amount more we could add on some other sites to see. One of these was the small Temple of Jupiter. It is interesting, but you hardly need a minute to see the whole thing.

Rome's last emperor to claim divinity, Diocletian proclaimed himself the son of Jupiter, from where the expression By Jove comes from. His Temple, remarkably intact, was turned into a baptistry by the early Christians but the amazing ceiling and wonderful doorway frieze are remarkable reminders of the power of Rome.

While we were in Split’s old city, we visited the Church of St. Domnius. As we exited the church, we saw a side street (called Kraj Sveti Ivana) opposite the church with a sign pointing down the small street to the Temple of Jupiter. There was a 1€ fee to enter the temple which was just one large round room.... More
