Cathedral of St. Stephen I


The Cathedral of St. Stephen I, Pope and Martyr was built on the site of the Benedictine monastery of St. Mary of Lesna. It became a cathedral in the 13th century, when the center of the diocese moved from the Old Town to Hvar. In the 18th century, it was a three-nave basilica-type building with a square sanctuary and a Renaissance choir, with a late Renaissance three-leafed façade, symbolizing the Holy Trinity, and a beautiful bell tower on the north side.

Beautiful architectural building with a Romansque bell that dominates the square. We toured around the cathedral and the experience was amazing.
