The Church of St. Catherine was built in 1392 and served as a parish church until 1860. It is the most famous cultural monument of Lindar because of the unusual and unique fresco "Living Cross" which is located in the interior. The fresco was painted in 1409, as evidenced by the Glagolitic inscription in the painting, and shows an allegorical depiction of the scene of the Crucifixion, with the arms of the cross being transformed into four living hands. Recent restorations have uncovered the remains of frescoes on the sanctuary wall as well, depicting a scene of Judas' kiss. At the front of the church there is a horseshoe without a bell, and in front of the church there is a porch with Gothic profiled passages. The wooden carved altar dates from 1770, and the altar painting from the 17th century. century.
