The Temple is indeed in avery good shape and quite interesting, but really small and as a touristical highlight of Split it is quite poorly arranged. The size of the temple is of course no problem, and it is a really interesting place. You can see the typical, unique history of the old town of Split: The pagan temple of... More

This tiny temple was the prototype for other shrines built in Dalmatia. A Christian baptistry inside, and a pagan temple outside, it is packed with culture and meaning. The aladdin lamp carvings turn into vines with fat cherubs, flowers, leaves, lizards and birds - pagan carvings were always over the top. Jupiter's "friends" greet you as you enter, with the...

Well, what did I actually paid for? Just one room with less than average carvings and nothing more. Sorry to say it out loud but that sucked?

Don't miss it, but don't expect you'll see much of a temple. It's no more than à big room now (though very old) There is ticket including this temple, the church, the bell tower, the crypt and the treasure.

you can get a combiticket from the cathedral entrance, which is valid for the cathedral, the crypt, the treasury, the bell tower and this temple, later converted into a church. Appearantly one of the best survived Roman temples in Europe, well worth a visit, after having seen it, all the ruins of other temples make a lot more sense.

It is just a room now. Of course, stone carvings and statue are worth seeing. Do not miss the ceiling. But this is only for interested people and not for children and fun!

As in most of the cases in Split, a Roman pagan monument was transformed in a Christian one since the Middle Ages. The architecture is great, and the marble reliefs in the centre of the ex-temple are of a very fine quality. The original coffer cealing decorated with little heads, flowers, baskets and other objects is really beatiful. It definitely... More

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.
