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.

If you wander by the forum area, you will see this beautiful old church, I didn't get inside, but I did enjoy the exterior.

Didn't go inside the main building as you had to pay but the view from the tower was amazing! The grounds itself is a lovely place to go for lunch
