While the Cathedral is definitely worth seeing my wife and I enjoyed spending more time at the large Roman Amphitheatre in the center of town. As recommended by #AdventuresCroatia we were sure to visit the subterranean level. Definitely worth the visit if you are going to Croatia!

The cathedral was built on the main street leading to the Forum, at the site were Christians gathered from the 4th century. The remains of this ancient part of the church can still be seen at the lower part of the rear wall. The church was reconstructed on several occasions, mostly due to a fire in the 13th century.

This interior needs to be lit up. bring back some light and vision. Have panels that tell a story of its history. A joyless place whether one is a believer or not.

A very pretty cathedral or more like a large church compared with other cathedrals. It has lots of information inside to tell you about its history. Well worth a visit as it was free. We also donated 3 kn each to light candles which was nice.

This was very quite unlike most cathedrals not at all ornate, but with the most lovely feel of a real place of worship.

This church took some serious hits in WWII. You can tell by the color of the pillars and the capitals on each. It looks like only 4 of the 14 or so pillars are original. Would have loved to see this church in it's hey day. Looks a bit like a big 'ol pole barn now.

Pula is not that big city, so it's interesting to see that there seems to be a church in "every" corner. This Cathedral is located near seaside and Old Town. Free entrance and worth of visit

wherever we go we end up in cathedrals or churches . We are not religious however they are a cool peaceful sanctuary in 38 degree heat. No where near as decorated as many we have seen , however the peace was a welcome relief

This Hodge-podge of architectural details is said to house the remains of a 13th Century Hungarian King, but don't raise your hopes too much: the facade is the only item of partial interest. Even its tower is somewhat short and looking more like an elephant than an elegant Belvedere. The inside is empty of any decoration and of no interest... More

In the Croatian town of Pula, I've been three times. Unlike previous visits, which were a combination of official and private, now I'm trying to make this city a little "unfolded", not as a journalist or scientist, but with the ambition to discover what escapes from the views of ordinary tourists or routinely correspondent. Coincidentally, it is the recommendation of... More
