A UNESCO World Heritage site, St. James is a Renaissance masterpiece that took a century to build. On its facade are 71 different sculpted faces!

The famous Sibenik St. James’ Cathedral is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It was constructed over a period of a century, and is testimony to the determination, sacrifice and belief of the generations of inhabitants of Sibenik. By many things it is unique not only in Croatian architecture, but in European architecture too: it is entirely built of stone, no other material was used.

Built by Juraj Dalmatinac, it is especially unique in the harmony of its architecture and the row of 71 realistic sculptural portraits around the apses. The cathedral and the nearby renaissance town hall, other churches, palaces, and the Prince’s Palace make up probably the most beautiful town square of Croatia’s urban heritage.
