Sveta Marija Katedrala, Pula
This picture shows the Northern wall of Sveta Marija Katedrala, opposite to the main entrance. The little street leads to Obala Maršala Tita and the sea, 50 meters away. Pay attention to the small round window, in the center of the picture, with two crosses in the middle of a circle, entirely carved in stone.
The back (north eastern side) of Sveta Marija Katedrala seems to have incorporated an older building as a triangular front appear in the middle of its front. However, it does not seem old enough to be a Roman remain.
On one of the walls of Sveta Marija Katedrala, a bas-relief seems to represent a bishop holding a banner with its holy cross, while underneath a figure (women ?) is sitting and looking compassionately on a wounded (dead ?) body on the right. I have not seen anywhere an explanation on the scene it represents.
Opposite to the main entrance of Sveta Marija Katedrala, the cloister opens on Kandlerova ulica. Behind an old cypress with a bare trunk , on top of the three columns, a carving refers to the Dead. Underneath, the shaded porch is appealing !
Sveta Marija Katedrala (Saint Mary Cathedral), better known as Uzacesca Blasene Djevice Marije (Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary) was mostly built in the 15th century. The main entrance was built in 1456. Main improvements were done in 1640.
