Scenic lookouts

Scenic Viewpoint
“A possible future World Heritage Site, Zadar’s cathedral is on the site of a very early Christian basilica that was founded back in the year 300. The building you see today was started in the 1100s and is yet another example of Zadar’s fine collection of romanesque architecture. It was consecrated by Pope Alexander VII in 1177 and then more than 800 years later, Pope John Paul II paid the cathedral a visit in 2003. Inside you can see an early-Christian mosaic dating back to the original basilca. The cathedral’s magnificent bell-tower is newer, having been started in the 15th century and only completed at the end of the 1800s. ”

“The 17th-century Church of St. Simeon is worth a visit. Here, you'll find the remains of St. Simeon, one of Zadar's four patron saints, kept in a sarcophagus designed by Francesco da Milano in the late 14th-century. On the cedar coffin are gold-plated reliefs depicting the life of St. Simeon and a copy of Capella dell'Arena from Padua, Italy.”
