St. Stephen's Cathedral, Hvar

3.6
#3 of 6 in Historic Sites in Hvar
Overlooking Hvar's main square, St. Stephen's Cathedral is one of the most impressive buildings on the island, notable mainly for its beautiful 16th-century bell tower. Although a prior Christian church stood on the site as early as the 6th century, the latest structure dates mostly from the 18th century. The building's architecture and interior design exhibit a mixture of styles, from Gothic and Renaissance to Baroque. As you enter the nave, notice the pulpits, altars, and paintings by Venetian artists--the oldest image you'll see there is a work from the 13th century.

  • Very average place. Person working there (not a priest) very unfriendly and pushy try to sell some stuff to visitors.  more »
  • Beautiful old building. The old town of Hvar has a lot more to offer. Just sneak through the alleys and see where you can get :) really very exciting. Beautiful old town and winding small bars and restaurants - great architecture.
