    Northern wall of Sveta Marija Katedrala

    by JLBG Updated May 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Back of Sveta Marija Katedrala

    by JLBG Updated Jan 27, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Sveta Marija Katedrala, detail of a bas-relief

    by JLBG Updated Jan 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Sveta Marija Katedrala, the cloister

    by JLBG Updated Jan 27, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 !
