Shibenik's Cathedral of St. James, now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the architectural highlights of the Dalmatian coast. Begun in the early 15th century, this great cathedral took more than 100 years to complete under the initial guidance of Venetian architect Antonio Dalla, and the responsibility later passed to the sculptor Jurc Dalmatinac, and then to Nikola Firentinac.
Various styles were incorporated during construction, including the Gothic lower level and the Renaissance upper level. One of the most interesting features is the exquisite frieze on the outside of the apse with more than 70 unique faces representing ordinary people from the 15th century.
