“A.A.A. Cathedral (an ancient awesome cathedral)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011 via mobile

I'm from this city: trust me, this place has a wonderful sight! If you wanna take your date to a romantic place, that's the place you wanna take her! Beautiful sunsets and magnificent views on the sea are only two of the things that make this place so awesome! Plus, the cathedral is in roman style but it also has rests of a greek temple underneath! And guess what?! It's the Venus' temple, the goddess of love!! So what you wating for? Go see it! It's really worth!

“Charming church and great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2008

The Cathedral of St. Ciriaco was consecrated in the first century and some suppose that the original church was in the form of a Latin cross from the 8th century. This is a fine Romanesque building of stone built in the form of a Greek cross with a dome. The façade has a Gothic portal, with two large lions on each side.

There is a crypt under the left side and the interior has an interesting wood beam ceiling and simple Romanesque features. The church was carefully restored in the 1980s.

From this vantage point you have good views of the port, city, some Roman ruins and the Adriatic Sea.

Parking at the top is limited but the walk up is rather steep.
