Trogir - The Cathedral of St. Lawrence

Published in Culture and sights

The Cathedral of St. Lawrence was built in the 13th century with an arched layout of the Romanesque basilica with three naves, an antechamber with three semicircular apses and is one of the most beautiful monuments in Europe. The main entrance to the Cathedral leads through the Radovan doorway, an artistic masterpiece, built in 1340. In the ante chamber is a Baptistery created by Andrija Aleši Dračanin (a Renaissance sculptor and master architect) (1467). The church tower is 47m high, built in the 14th century and is one of the most beautiful not only in Dalmatia, but also on the Mediterranean coast. Trogir's cathedral was constructed over four centuries (1200. – 1598.) It was renovated in 2002 under the American foundation project - Venetian Heritage.
