Imposing entrance meets you, when you enter the church. A small one, but with much to look at. Also in the treasury. Our grandchildren had a great view in the tower.

Very nice church with much to see. Liked the treasury the most. It had lots of interesting stuff to see that I have never seen before.

There’s not an enormous amount to see but the Treasury does house some interesting artefacts. We didn’t go to the bell tower as it looked a bit claustrophobic and it was a very very hot day and under 14s are not allowed.

Old Trogir is packed with stone buildings and narrow winding streets so it is nice to have some higher ground to watche it over and tower of the Catchedral is the right place. Also the interior of the Cathedral is very nice and lavishly decorated....More

The main reason to visit this church is to go up the bell tower to see the city. The church itself is nice but not spectacular and does not have any masterpieces. We climbed halfway the bell tower but did not dare to go up...More

Stunning building that is well kept and preserved. Unmissable if you’re in Trogir as it can’t be seen from most points

Abit expensive for the entrance (4 euroes), however when you get inside, you should definitely visit the bell tower. It is an amazing walk up there, and the view is fantastic. Otherwise, the church is pretty much the same as other churches in Croatia.

Well worth a visit, the view from the top is super, although the steps are super narrow, it's not for anyone who is less mobile.

Externally this Cathedral cannot be compared with St James in Sibenik but internally it is in the same class. The portal with an embarrassed Adam and Eve exists here also. The fact that there are three naves is interesting. Search out the Treasury, the Chapel...More

Situated in the Central Square of Trogir, this cathedral is definately worth a visit. I would recommend visiting either early morning or late afternoon after the tour groups have gone. Be aware - no cameras allowed.

Trogir is a nice old city, to walk in the narrow street, there is a campenila in the cathedral and staires to go up, the panoramic view around is very nice, maybe the chandlier is in the cathedral.

I think the cost is €3.50 for entry, which covers entry to the church sections and the bell tower. Well worth it. Our best photos are from the bell tower!
