Third time lucky and it was open! Located in the central square. Stunning structure and colours in the sunlight. Opens at weird times. You have to be lucky. The inside is nice too.

The Cathedral sits at one end of the pretty square in town. It was interesting to learn that the reason for the two different sizes of doors was that the large doors were for the "important" people and the smaller doors were for the commoners.

Lots of Christian sculptures inside, telling a story of course. Many beautiful stained-glass windows.

... & worth looking around to get a feeling of the history & peace of this church.
It presents an ideal photo opportunity both during the day as well as evening.

The Cathedral is situated at the top of the town square. From the outside it has a nice bell tower and frontage. Inside is very nice with art and sculptures along the walls. You can take as long as you need looking around and it is quiet and respectful inside.
Hvar is a lovely town, everything is so clean and well looked after so I would recommend taking time to have a look inside the Catherdral.

We heard its bells tolling the hours. When we visited we were fortunate to hear the organ in full song. What a joy. We sat and listened while we revelled in the total beauty and simplicity of the whole building. Such a delicious change from the ornate and intricate! The acoustics were divine. Joy to the soul!

Very average place. Person working there (not a priest) very unfriendly and pushy try to sell some stuff to visitors.

The cathedral of St Stephen (Sv. Stjepana) is a grand and beautiful building situated in the corner of St Stephen’s Square. It has the most amazing bell tower. All around are wonderful stone buildings with cafes, restaurants, shops and the museum with the harbour at the opposite end. Unfortunately our tour didn’t include time to go inside the cathedral but we plan to visit on our return to Hvar.

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