There is a guy playing the guitar on the cathedral steps - pity there is no sound.
My good friend was married in the cathedral last year. Great location.
Thanks guys- however I can't claim the credit - what did we do before internet searches! ☺
Hi Messer, Thanks for the interesting details. That cafe looks inviting, great place to people watch!
History lesson as well. Thanks Messer.
The cathedral was built on the site of several former cathedrals, including 7th, 10th and 11th century buildings, and their 12th century successor in the Romanesque style. The money to build the basilica was partially contributed by the English king Richard the Lion Heart, as a votive for having survived a shipwreck near the island of Lokrum in 1192 on his return from the Third Crusade.
A nice busy place!
