The cathedral is quite small, but has a really interesting treasury (where you are not allowed to take photos) with old artefacts dating from 13th century onwards. Also worth climbing the bell tower for the views!!! (For those who do not enjoy heights (such as myself), the very last part of the staircase is basically nearly vertical and you have... More

The cathedral itself is small, but worth a visit, the treasury is quite interesting historically. The highlight is the tower for the amazing views over the old town.

We visited the church (which supposedly had a dress code, but never saw it enforced) and enjoyed seeing the relics. What we found to be the most fun was walking up the steps to the very top. The staircase is not exactly 2-way so it gets a little dicey trying to get around people - luckily it wasn't very crowded... More

We like to mix in holidays lazy beach evenings with walks in historic sites, old churches... so i've seen a few. This is one of the most impressive, especially if you think how old it is! We were lucky enough to enjoy an organ concert also!

This is a lovely little Cathedral. Very understated and all the better for it's simplicity. Well worth spending an or so looking round.

This requires a small entrance fee and makes seeing the intricate carvings around the doors easier, this Cathedral would be classed as a church in most towns but as the largest in Trogir they class it as a cathedral so worth a quick visit and a good escape from the blazing sun.

Amazing church to visit and go all the way up to the tower to have an amazing view. There are quite few steps but it worth the climb. A must to visit

This catherdral is stunning from the outside with its pearl white stone. The impressive ornately carved doorway entrance is beautiful. Also inside is a side room with some ancient relics well worth a look. The trip to the bell tower is not for the faint hearted! A short claustrophobic for some wander up the fantastic spiral staircase brings you out... More
