Cathedral And Bell Tower Of St. Domnius Reviews & Ratings
Go at 8am to miss crowds in summer. Beautiful inside. Treasury full of interesting things. Bell tower amazing views although tricky climb up scaffolding stairs. So easier without lots of people.
Great place to visit. Right inside the Diocletian's palace. The bell tower is a must go. Breathe taking view after some hard work climbing up. Worth every single moment being up there
The place is beautiful, but it's enough to see it from the outside. You pay 3,50€ to see the inside of the cathedral, the crypts and the baptistery, but only the cathedral has something to see, but it's very small. The crypts and the baptistery are not well preserved and barely have something. The looks from the outside already give you an idea of what everything is like.
Be prepared for a long and arduous climb up the stairs. Some of the stone steps are 30 centimetres tall! But, once you're at the top, your efforts will be paid for with an AMAZING view. Watch out when you walk back downstairs, for the stairs have eroded over time, and some steps are quite slippery! Not for the faint of heart, or those that have difficulties with heights, unless you want to challenge yourself! The scaffolding puts a damper on the beauty of this Cathedral, it used to be more open, and beautiful without it, I hope that the scaffolding will be gone soon. The inside of the cathedral is also beautiful, with lots of works of art to see!
The line to get in took 20 minutes and be prepared to walk thin, steep stairs upwards for 60 metres to the top. Once there, the 360 degree views of Split from this tower at the centre of Diocletian's Palace are amazing! Highly recommended, for only 30 Croatian Kuna!
