  • This is a must visit area on your journey around the old town, with its imposing bell tower it hard to miss. A beautiful area which is worth your time to visit. 
  • Impossible to miss it on since it is located in the old town of Split. I did not visit the Tower, but it must be possible to go there to enjoy a beautiful view of the city.

  • Built as a mausoleum of Diocletian, but later it is used as a Christian Church. On the entrance door, decorated with intricate carvings of Romanesque 28 scenes in the Bible. Also, the Interior sights such as St. stash altar and choir. The adjacent Romanesque Bell Tower is able to climb up to the top.
