Cathedral Of Saint Domnius- In Split, we find one of the top choice churches; The Cathedral of Saint Domnius. This is one of the best preserved octagonal churches standing today and it is Splits most recognizable cultural landmark. From the tower, you have a 360-degree panoramic view of the city below. A designing detail; originally the church was built as a mausoleum for the Roman Emperor Diocletian.
The bell tower construction began somewhere around the year 1100 and, by some books, that phase lasted for over 300 years. It is built mainly in Romanesque style, but because of the length of its construction other styles are noticeable as well.
The bell tower today is particularly popular with the tourists as you can climb the stairs all the way to the top of the bell tower, 57 meters high, for the unforgettable panoramic view of Split and the islands surrounding it.
