  • St. Mary's Church of the 16th century with a 19th century bell tower is located in the historic center of the city, next to the embankment and port, in a labyrinth of narrow curved streets with stone houses of the 16th-19th centuries, where in addition to pedestrians, many motorcyclists. And the shadows are not enough. The three-tiered bell tower dominates the city. On it you can climb the stairs and see this small pretty Dalmatian town. It's a beautiful sight! Small stone houses under red tiled roofs.

  • For goodness sake ... By faith we visit again the House of our Lord, but I can't pay for a ticket to see a church in the suburbs.
