Another big church, some intresting wood works inside, impressing door, some grave of high ranking preasts. The highlight of this church is the tower from where you can take beautiful pictures of the city. Tickets cost 25 kuna to visit tower and church.

This cathedral is fabolous, not an average one. Sorrounding is also very nice. We saw an Asian priest celebrated mess, it was a unique experience.

Beautiful well preserved Church. You need to to up the Bell tower to appreciate the View! Climbing can be a little hasardous but definitely worth the effort!

Definitely worth visiting. We took our 9 & 11 year old up to the bell tower. It was quite steep, with lots of stairs. They loved it. The view was amazing, you could see the whole of Trogir. Go early as it was getting very busy and hot.

Take the time to read about the Radovan Portal before you visit to make sure that you notice all the very intricate carvings. People, animals, flora and imaginary figures make the whole even more exciting that just taking a quick glance and moving on. Well worth time to appreciate. The interior of the Cathedral also worth a little reading before... More

This cathedral has an admission fee, but well worth it. Best to do early in the day if you're going to climb the bell-tower.

Good luck with the stairs and ladders on the way up to the bell tower. The cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit as is the whole island of Trogir
