This church with its clock tower is in the main square. It was the church of Santa Maria of the Plaza constructed in the 9th century. Around the central space beneath the dome there are six apses, which like the large central drum, were decorated with blind arches. Its remains are preserved to this day. There was also a porch which would then be demolished and in the year 1947, the Votive Church of San Sebastian was built to protect the city from the plague. The facade has a statue of St. Sebastian and above this, a statue of Jesus Christ with the blessing gesture of casting. In the tower one can see the clock of the city, and at the top of the tower you can see the bell.
The Church of St Rocco, or Sveti Rock, is a very small church which is no longer a functioning place of worship, but rather the city's tourist office. It has a great location next to Diocletian's Palace. The church, with its Renaissance facade, was built in 1516, converting an older, Romanesque house. It's one of several old buildings around the old town of Split which have a new lease of life, thanks to tourism, fashion, shops or banks, showing how the city continues to grow and update its history.
This is a bit of a different on the outskirts of historic Split. It lies at the foot of the Marjan hill, which is the starting point of the path that leads up the hill, where you can discover one of the most beautiful views of Split and the surrounding region. The interior of the church is Baroque. It was built in the 17th century, and the altar has a statue of San Francisco surrounded by animals, because as legend has it, he had the power to dominate and talk to animals. In summer, it hosts many classical music concerts. Next to the church there's a monastery.
