If the outside is anything to go by definitely worth a look indoors. When we went though there was a festival on and we couldn't get near the entrance. Shame as its a really stunning building.

Worth a detour if you are in Sibenik. Next to the waterfront. Loved the human faces on the outside walls. But not the most grand or most impressive cathedral we visited in our 2 weeks in croatia.

This is a pretty small but carefully decorated cathedral. I really liked the tiny faces on the north wall of the cathedral and the baptise area. The sculptured decoration looked like lace. It isn't worth a special detour but if you are in Sibenik it...More

This was very busy when we went so was quite tricky navigating through crowds of schoolchildren to move around. A lot of the building was under renovation so we couldn’t get to see a lot of it. The staff were helpful giving our toddler some...More

St James Cathedral is central to the square in the old city. Unique architecture as it's a combination of the squat Romanesque style and the more baroque Gothic features. The faces of the common men on the outer wall, all with different expressions (like Shi...More
