"Cathedral of St. Duje" Cathedral & Bell Tower Tip by antistar
Cathedral & Bell Tower, Split: 30 reviews and 84 photos
Fittingly, Split Cathedral, built over the palace of a Christian butchering Roman emperor, is dedicated to St. Duje, a martyr who died at the hands of Emperor Diocletian. During the Christian persecution he was beheaded, along with the eight soldiers he had converted to Christianity. He is now the patron saint of the city.
The main part of the church is built into the original Roman mausoleum, but the impressive Romanesque tower is a wholly new construct, coming in the 1100s.
Directions: Just inside the walls of the old town.
