St. Stephen's Cathedral, Hvar

4.3
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Hvar
Overlooking Hvar's main square, St. Stephen's Cathedral is one of the most impressive buildings on the island, notable mainly for its beautiful 16th-century bell tower. Although a prior Christian church stood on the site as early as the 6th century, the latest structure dates mostly from the 18th century. The building's architecture and interior design exhibit a mixture of styles, from Gothic and Renaissance to Baroque. As you enter the nave, notice the pulpits, altars, and paintings by Venetian artists--the oldest image you'll see there is a work from the 13th century.

  • Really traditional mediterrian church. On the main square in Hvar. Tipical Dalmatian square in stone in front of it.  more »
  • This is a nice little church easy to find and central to the town. There are plenty of restaurants, ATM's and places to sit in the square. This is also where the path to the Fortress starts.  more »
