  • It's a beautiful cathedral, very gilded, yet it's a shame that after standing in line so long one has to stay in another line for the bell tower and pay and additional fee. Overall it's beautiful but....  more »
  • Very small. Dates to 305AD. Mausoleum of Diocletian. Tour groups crowd it out. Gold, panel paintings, exquisitely carved wooden doors.  more »

  • Go at 8am to miss crowds in summer. Beautiful inside. Treasury full of interesting things. Bell tower amazing views although tricky climb up scaffolding stairs. So easier without lots of people.
  • Great place to visit. Right inside the Diocletian's palace. The bell tower is a must go. Breathe taking view after some hard work climbing up. Worth every single moment being up there
