New Year's Eve 2017

We could see the Cathedral from outside as was under renovation and closed. Very nice outdoors decoration on walls.

Passed by The Cathedral on 11 Nov 2016. As the church was locked, we could only see it from the outside. After visiting the Arena, while walking to the Forum, using the coastal route, you will not miss the Cathedral.

This cathedral will probably only hold the attention of real enthusiasts. There is very little in the way of decoration, and it is probably one of the smallest cathedrals I've ever been in. A few minutes to stroll around is the most it took.

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.
