The Cathedral of Saint James in Šibenik [1431-1535] bears witness to the considerable exchanges in the field of monumental arts between Northern Italy, Dalmatia and Tuscany in the 15th and 16th centuries. The architects, who succeeded one another in the construction of the Cathedral, developed a structure built entirely from stone and using unique construction techniques for the vaulting and the dome of the Cathedral. The form and the decorative elements of the Cathedral, such as a remarkable frieze decorated with 71 sculptured faces of men, women, and children, also illustrate the successful fusion of Gothic and Renaissance art.
In 2000, this monument was listed as UNESCO World Heritage.

A mixture of late Gothic and Reniassance style - a UNESCO heritage site. The outside detail is mind boggeling - note the stone inter-locking arched roof (amazing). The interior is somewhat a let down - the bapistry however is gorgeous (facing the alter, on the right, down the stairs). Be sure to take time to appreciate the carved heads wrapping around the outside of the church.
see the Cathedral of St. Jacob...
The Cathedral of Sv. Jakov (St. Jacob) in Šibenik is a triple nave basilica with three apses and a cupola (height of interior is 32 m). The cathedral construction began in the Venetian Gothic style, and was completed in the Toscano Renaissance style. It was consecrated in 1555. The construction began in 1431 at the place where a small cathedral had earlier stood, and as such, the cathedral was built using much of the material of the former church. In 1444, Juraj (Matejev) Dalmatinac took over the construction. Under his leadership, both side naves, the sanctuary, the apse ornamented with a wreath of 74 heads (considered to be a portrait of the eminent citizens of Šibenik) and the sacristy were erected. Nikola Firentinac continued the construction (with the completion of the side naves, the cupola and the project of the stone ceiling vaults). Following Firentinac’s death in 1505, the Cathedral was finally completed by Bartolomeo and Giacomo de Mestre.
