Roman temple in great shape

When in Split, you must visit the temple of Jupiter, built by the Romans to honor the king of the gods. It is in marvelous shape.

Not much left of the original temple but the carving on the baptismal pool is of amazing quality and the carved frieze around the exterior door repays a close look. If you just breeze in and take a quick look around you'll probably be disappointed but I was happily occupied for nearly half an hour. Visit early before the crowds... More

The temple, itself, is historically amazing. It costs a few dollars to walk in, but be prepared the interior isn't going to blow you away. The structure, itself, is the amazing piece and as a total package must be seen to complete a palace tour (it is included in your combat ticket price if you buy this at the church... More

The former Temple of Jupiter was converted into a baptistery in the middle ages. The reconstructed font would need attention to hold water! The roof is the most interesting part of the building.

I very ornate curved vaulted ceiling and bronze not of Jupiter but supposably of John the Baptist. Was very crowded but worth the visit when at the Diocletian's Palace.

Off a side street from the peristyle, this little temple has an amazing ceiling, and the remains of another sphinx

Look for the black granite headless sphinx guarding the entrance to this small temple built in the 5th century. The decorative frieze on the walls, vaulted ceiling, and statue of John the Baptist make this a short but worthwhile stop while exploring Diocletian's Palace.
