The Cathedral is in the main square in Hvar and is definitely worth a walk inside for some pictures. The altar is somewhat plain, but has a beautiful painting, I assume of St. Stephen behind the altar and Jesus on the cross near the ceiling above the altar. There is a pretty statue of Mary holding baby Jesus along with other beautiful artwork. The main door is also quite impressive.

Visit this cathedral, and see the main square around it. This is the center of Hvar. You can see Arsenal, Historic Theater, hotel Palace Elizabeth, marina, bust of Kovacevich (inventor of dactyloscopy) with a giant fingerprint on front of it, and many more.

A lovely building to explore and a highlight of the square. We only peeked in through the door but it looked interesting inside.

Rude and sexist staff. Wouldn't let a female in shorts enter but male accompanying her also wearing shorts was fine. A few minutes later 2 women who looked local however were offered capes to cover themselves because they were also wearing shorts, but I was not offered this even after entering a second time to see why I did not get offered the same privilege. Disgraceful and unchristian.

Nice place to stop and take in the area. The area is a large square with a beautiful church at the corner.

This area seems to be the community square of this tiny island. Many vendors come out to sell their goods under the warm sun greeting tourists and locals alike. It's impossible to get lost so I recommend wandering up through a few of the residential streets, respectfully of course, taking in sites of the coastline and town center from all around. You'll meet so many locals this way and even stumble upon some great smaller shops and restaurants off the main square.

A pleasant quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the main square beautiful interior but opening times limited to 0900-1200 and 1700-1900.Also as an active church it is often closed for services or "Prayer only"during these times.Free entry.

Pop in on Sunday, okay couldn't really understand the sermon but liked the tone and body language. Lovely to say a few words and prayers in calm peaceful atmosphere.....offered the peace handshake and so lovely to be greated back by another tourist.

I tried to find out before arrival when are services in Hvar but I did not find such information. Now I enclose current info. The cathedral has some nice pictures, mostly a bit "heavy" baroque interior, party not so beautiful elements but when you look for a place to pray it is a right place for you.
