Church of Saint Andrew


The Church of St. Andrew was built sometime between 1200 and 1300, and underwent expansion several times during the later centuries. Its nave was enlarged in mid-17th century, with the side aisles added in the late 18th century (from 1785 to 1795).

The main altar was built in the 18th century, as well, and decorated with five statues made by Jacopo Contieri. The painting of St. Andrew serves as the altarpiece. While the church is dedicated to the apostle Andrew, its side altars are dedicated to St. Francis and Our Lady of the Rosary respectively. Several other saints are represented as well: St. Ignatius of Loyola and St. John of Nepomuk both have their statues here, along with St. Peter whose statue, dated to the 17th century, sits below the choir. The statues of St. Dominick and St. Catherine of Siena adorn the side altars. The church’s organ was built in 1847, replacing an older organ from the mid-17th century, and was restored in 1998.

It is worth noting that this church was established as a parish church in the 14th century and that all of the books used during services were written in the Glagolitic script, well into the 19th century when finally the Croatian alphabet was introduced into writing.
