No much to see but it was still good to go and have a look. Plus on a hot day it's cool. Think it's a bit of an attraction in progress as there were empty cabinets. Still glad I went in. Not suitable for anyone...More

We climbed the tower attached to the church for a small fee. This is a must do if you are able, the views of Zadar are brilliant. Please take a trip up the tower if you are in Zadar.

It's worth a pop in and a walk around and up the stairs to appreciate the history there. It's OLD! We were lucky enough to have a guide who also sang a capella to demonstrate the acoustics and explain which columns were still originals.
