Cathedral of St. Stephen

Trg svetog Stjepana, 21450, Hvar, Croatia

On the eastern side of Hvar’s main square is the Cathedral of St. Stephen. Construction on the structure began in the 6th century and finished in the 17th century, and multiple architecture styles are evident, including Gothic, Romanesque and Renaissance. Particularly remarkable is the four-story bell tower and Madonna, a renowned painting that exemplifies proto-Venetian art and is one of the oldest in Dalmatia (dating back to 1220).
