Built in stages between 1431 and 1536, this monumental white Gothic-Renaissance Cathedral brings together various styles and the contributions of multiple architects. However, the design is generally attributed to Juraj Dalmatinac, who was also responsible for Pag Town, though sadly he died before the cathedral was completed. In his absence, one of his pupils, Nikola Fiorentinac, supervised the final stages of the project. Note the trefoil façade, the ornate Gothic portals, the vaulted roof, the splendid cupola, and the exterior frieze made up of 74 carved faces, said to have been local individuals who refused to make financial contributions to the cathedral’s construction. Inside, the ornately carved baptistery is also worth a look.
