This is a nice starting point in Sibenik if you arrive on a cruise. Few steps to climb and get there but it is a focal point. Very nice Cathedral to visit. It is a very important place in Sibenik.

Our tour guide took us to visit, but when they wanted money to go inside, I just walked around outside and admired the architecture.

Cost a little, but the history, the elegance, the quiet reflection is wonderful. Don't miss the subfloor baptism room to the right of the main altar. The carved ceiling is very impressive.
