Cathedral of Saint Domnius in Split Country Croatia Denomination Roman Catholic Architecture Style Ancient/Romanesque Years built 4th century Clergy The Cathedral of Saint Domnius (Croatian: Katedrala Svetog Duje), known locally as the Sveti Dujam or colloquially Sveti Duje, is the Catholic cathedral in Split, Croatia. The cathedral is the seat of the Archdiocese of Split-Makarska, headed by Archbishop Marin Barišić. The Cathedral of St. Domnius is a complex of a church, formed from an Imperial Roman mausoleum, with a bell tower; strictly the church is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and the bell tower to Saint Domnius. Together they form the Cathedral of St. Domnius. The Cathedral of Saint Domnius, consecrated at the turn of the 7th century AD, is regarded as the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure, without near-complete renovation at a later date (though the bell tower dates from the 12th century). The structure itself, built in AD 3

This tower has a lot of steps and is not for the faint of heart, don’t look down while climbing the metal stairs! Worth the climb for the great view of the city. There is a small fee to enter the tower.

It is a long walk up, but not nearly as long or as tiring as the trek up the bell tower of the Paris Cathedral Sacre Coeur. On a hot day the cool breeze is delightful and the view is spectacular. The mostly metal staircase...More

The Cathedral of St. Dominus was even smaller than I had expected, and it was easy to see that it had originated as Diocletian’s mausoleum. The most distinctive feature was the golden altarpiece, which stood under an arch and could be viewed from both sides....More
