The Cathedral of St. Lovro is one of the most beautiful architectural structures of the historical center of Trogir included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. It was built on the site of an ancient Christian church destroyed by the Saracens. The construction of the cathedral began in 1193 and was completed at the end of the 15th century.
The decoration of the cathedral is a carved door made in the Romanesque style by master Radovan and two stone lions.
On the territory of the Cathedral of St. Lovro there is a 47-meter high bell tower built in the 14th century. At the moment, there is an observation deck on it, from where an amazing view of the city opens. You can climb to the observation deck before noon for a small fee.
During a tour of the cathedral, pay attention to the Renaissance chapel of St. John, which is decorated with images of St. John the Baptist and St. Jerome. The sculptors Duknovich and Firentinak were responsible for the decoration of the chapel from 1461 to 1497. It is notable that the entrance to the chapel is through a back door, which is sometimes difficult to find.
