Cathedral & Bell Tower, Split: 4 reviews and 4 photos
The Cathedral inside Diocletian's Palace is actually one of the smallest in the world, but none of the less a very interesting one.
The Bell Tower was built in the narrow space between the Cathedral and the Peristyle in the 13th to 14th century, in a romanesque style, with the gothic-rennaissance end on top. During the reconstruction in the 19th century the bell-tower was radically transformed, and many of the original romanesque sculptures were removed.
One very interesting fact is that The Cathedral bears the St.Maria's name and only the Bell Tower bears the name of St.Doimus (Sveti Dujam) - the bishop of Salona.
