The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Split-Makarska (Croatian: Splitsko-makarska nadbiskupija; Latin: Archidioecesis Spalatensis-Macarscensis) is a Metropolitan archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic church in Croatia and Montenegro. The diocese was established in the 3rd century AD and was made an archdiocese and metropolitan see in the 10th century. The modern diocese was erected in 1828, when the historical archdiocese of Salona was combined with the Diocese of Makarska. It was elevated as an archdiocese and metropolitan see in 1969, restoring the earlier status of the archdiocese of Split, as it is also known. The diocese was also known as Spalato-Macarsca.

Beautiful and peaceful views can be found around the back, very few people around there. But be quiet and respectful to the residents that live there.
This place only admits Caucasian people. We had a terrible, discriminated experience. What a great holy Chistian place!
Beautiful views over the city await you BUT you have to make it up the precarious staircase first! Not for those scared of heights, suffer with vertigo! Something like this in the UK would have health and safety all over it haha! Great to experience and old building but not for the feint hearted lol
From this tower you have an incredible view on the city. Consider this the main attraction in Split, coz there is not that much else to see.
Beautiful on the inside and outside, great view of the entire old city. The tower was interesting to climb because of the cold war era stairs and pretty stiff winds. Not recommended for people who are afraid of heights.
It would be nice for staff not to give tourist an attitude before even entering the monument. I would have gladly paid the fee if it hadn't been for the front desk attendant's attitude towards my wife and I. I guess I'll spend my money elsewhere...
FANTASTIC so beautiful and well preserved💓🌴
Wonderful but small cathedral. Don't bother with the crypt. The Bell tower is worth the climb for the fantastic views. Don't be there at midday! Be in the square below.
The highlight of the cathedral is its bell tower, so if you’re afraid of heights you might want to reconsider paying the ticket. That said, views from the tower are beautiful (the interior of the tower is pretty amazing too, with its high arches). I’m personally afraid of heights but managed to climb to the top. I didn’t receive any kind of discrimination, being an Asian tourist, so perhaps the other reviewers were unlucky and encountered a rude staff.
Beautiful place. A bell tower is for brave people:) I liked the architecture very much
The smaller cathedral that you will see in Europe ! The story about this place are very nice
This grand church is built on top of the mausoleum of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, which is amusing because Diocletian is rather notorious in history for persecuting Christianity, perhaps second only to Nero. The church itself is dedicated to Mary, but the bell tower is dedicated to St. Domnius [Hint: Climb the bell tower and be amazed!]. The interior of the church is very large and well decorated, as it is the Cathedral and seat of the Archbishop of Split. Note the beautiful wooden doors of the cathedral as you exit, they show scenes from the life of Christ. There are altars inside holding relics of saints, and there is an altar dedicated to Mary. Also note the fantastic pulpit and the room behind the main altar, which has paintings of Christian scenes, and a wooden crucifix. Also, don't miss the treasury. The amazing gilt main altar with cherubic angel supporting a possible relic is also not to be missed. Don't miss the ancient crypt underneath the church, dedicated to St. Lucy. Outside the church, take a look at the supporting architecture, as well as the ancient colonnade. If you want to climb the Bell Tower to get a great view of the city and the sea surrounding it. There is an admissions fee, but it is not a large sum.
Interesting place, and forgot that the palace grounds covers a lot of split. So it's free. But the actual cathedral is costed. The tower had an amazing view. And the cathedral was nice. Not sure I would count this value for money, but it's done now.
Climbing the spiral staircase to look over split from this iconic bell tower when you are in Split is an absolute must do!
