CHURCHES


As you stroll through Split, it’s hard to miss the monasteries, chapels and churches which are a major part of the city’s history. Our little IYP tourist guide simply has to mention some of the grand holy sites that inexplicably reverberate the message ‘take out your camera and start snapping’. And with every snapshot, comes a story.

The gothic church of The Holy Spirit is located on Trogirska Street and further on is the renaissance church of Saint Rocco which dates back from 1516; it’s situated on Peristil. Here you can get loads of tourist advice and information. Venture down to the south of Peristil where there are two chapels, Gospa od Pojasa (Our Lady of the Belt) from 1544 and Gospa od Začeća (Our Lady of Conception) from 1650. In Veli Varoš on the Marjan down hills, you can see the Church of Saint Nicholas built from the 12th century and on its right, there is the Church of the Holy Cross with its baroque bell tower.
