The Cathedral of St James in Sibenik, Sibenik

Featuring robust stone fragments, intricate decorative elements, and a dark Gothic interior, The Cathedral of St James in Sibenik represents an important Renaissance structure listed as a World Heritage Site. The cathedral dates back to 1298, though the first boulder was laid in 1402. Over a period of more than a century, this simple stone church gradually received statues of Adam and Eve, the ceiling was adorned with angelic figures, and the facade transformed into a lavish piece of art. Observe the frieze, engraved with 71 faces of men, women, and children. Walk inside to view its dark mystic spaces and powerful ornamentation.

  • We did not go in as time did not allow. The stone work involved in this building is amazing. The carvings are very ornate and only add to the Splenda of the cathedral.  more »
  • If you like the sights so I highly recommend visiting this cathedral, ideally at a time of service that will give the place the right atmosphere.
