  • A church with a rich history that goes back to the Roman period. Interesting interior with a round design and a simpler church design. Main highlight is of course the bell tower.
  • Some nice history here but also a great place to get out of the sunshine if it becomes a little too hot.
  • Very crowded in the Summer. Nice view from the top. Located in the middle of Diocletian's Palace. Worth visiting.
  • 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
