Nice views of Zadar when you get to the top of the bell tower. Costs 15 kn to get access to the tower which isn't that bad. Hard to move around the top if there is a few people up there.

Looks lovely during the day but looks even better at night all lit up. Plenty of visitors and can get a bit busy
