The predecessor of the Basilica of St. Domnius (St. Domnius) was the Mausoleum of Diocletian. Fearing that the foundation of Christianity would be shaken, he carried out a campaign to persecute Christians, but after his death, Christians counterattacked and destroyed it. The dead body disappeared and the mausoleum was converted into a church, which is the biggest irony to him. The altar built in the 13th century and the statue of the sarcophagus are of great cultural value.
The landmark buildings in the Old City of Split are very majestic and ancient, dating back to the Roman period, but they are very well preserved. It can be seen that the people of Croatia are carefully protecting their historical and cultural heritage.
St. Dugin’s Church is the tomb of Diocletian the Great, which was later converted into a church. A 57-meter high bell tower was added in the Middle Ages. The Church of St. Domnius is very beautiful, and it is an excellent visual enjoyment to climb the bell tower and look around the city.
There is nothing particularly outstanding about St. Dougin’s church, but the bell tower of St. Dougin’s church is a must-see. The bell tower is the highest point of Diocletian’s Palace, 60 meters high, where you can see the city’s scenery, whether it’s sunrise or sunset or just the calm sea, everything is so beautiful.
St. Dugin's Church is located in the city of Split, Croatia's second largest city. The church was originally the tomb of the Roman Emperor Diocletian and was later converted to a church. Not far from Diocletian's Palace, it is the iconic building of Split.
