First to Review

Without a doubt the city’s most picturesque religious building, the rotunda shaped Cathedral of Saint Vitus is unique in shape compared to other cathedrals’ found across Croatia. Construction of the cathedral began in 1638 by the Jesuits, although it took nearly a whole century to build. Behind the main body of the cathedral is also a separate tower, which looks like a less impressive version of the City Tower.

Es la iglesia principal de Rijeka, construida sobre una elevación del terreno para otorgarle más importancia e inspirada en los estilos arquitectónicos venecianos. Su base es octogonal y junto a ella pero separada una torre campanario. Dedicado al patrono protector de La ciudad, bien merece una visita.

Playa de Gandia, Spain

Preciosa iglesia en forma octogonal, dedicada a San Vito, el patrono y protector de Rijeka. La iglesia es de origen barroco y su construcción data del siglo XVII. Una iglesia diferente al resto de las que vimos en Croacia, sobre todo por su forma arquitectónica. Una pena que no pudimos entrar al interior porque estaba cerrado el día que la visitamos.
