This is in the forum. A visit to the bell tower is a must. It's a bit of a climb but the view of the town and the islands is spectacular.

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!

The shade of the church and the campanile is a stunning orange during sunset. Unmistakably awesome..

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...

The church of St . Anastasia is the largest Dalmatian cathedral . She is beautiful. To enter and sightseeing there are rules and you will not leave if you are not appropriately trained . The bell tower is also superb and you definitely have to climb on it and see a great view of the environment . Legend has it... More

As far as cathedrals go, it's a fairly run of the mill church although the internal stone columns and high wooden ceiling give the church a feeling of being much larger than it actually is. The stone sarcophagus containing the remains of St Anastacia is one of the better features of the interior, but that too is not so impressive.... More

Sarcophagus of St. Anastasia is really unimpressive - just a stone box. That being said the church is worth the visit - be sure to get a good guide book or buy a leaflet (5 kuna) when you enter - it explains a lot about the architecture of different parts of the church. Wooden choir stalls are really beautiful. Climb... More
