The St. James Cathedral or Church of St. James, depending on who you ask, has an altar by the Italian Francesco Robba (the same sculptor who designed the altar in the Franciscan Church in Preseren Square). Otherwise, the church appears to escape the interest of the guidebooks in favour of the other churches in the area. If you do visit the church, head for the St. Fracis Xavier Chapel with a more impressive altar including a White Queen and Black King. In any case, St. James is remarkable because it is at the end of Stari Trg and just before the former Balkan Gate that leads into Krakovo. Its hard to miss because of its bright yellow exterior.
