A Romanesque gem

The Cathedral of St. Anastasia reminded me of other beautiful churches in Italy. It's built in typical Romanesque style with a very nice front side,

Heard there are 300 steps to the top of the Cathedral, height 62m. First part of steps is a very narrow passage, maybe 60-70cm wide so this is the warning for the "heavier" people :). Stairs are going round and round, some are concrete some steel. Beware when going up if there are some people going down, you (or them)... More

Zadar's Roman Catholic cathedral is dedicated to St. Anastasia, an early Christian martyr whose remains are kept in the church. The understated Renaissance style west facade of the church contrasts with the darker interior, constructed in the more spare Romanesque manner. Second story galleries along the length of the nave are fronted by ornamental stone grill work , behind which... More

We visited the bell tower that is part of the Zadar Cathedral as part of a night tour of Zadar. It was great! The entrance fee is minimal and the staircases are a bit tight for 2 way traffic but it is well worth it!

This is must see place. Fantastic place to visit for history lovers interested in religious locations. In the centre of the old town and next to St. Donat.

This is an old 9th centurt church. It is grand from outside..but interiors are fairly non attractive. It is dark with little lighting or natural light. Narrow and not very big as you expect in a cathedral

We had a chance to visit this cathedral, seems that the monument has been rebuilt with other materials than those used at the origin. Go in the late afternoon as it's free otherwise you have to pay to enter...
