Typically included with the church and crypt, it is a small building with great carvings inside and out. Stay a bit and let your eyes accommodate so you don't miss anything. By all means, look UP

As the ticket for entrance into the cathedral and bell tower also includes the temple of Jupiter, it is worth a quick visit. Not much to see but worth a flying visit as located right by the cathedral.

One of the main sights within the Diocletian Palace area. Good photo opportunity if the crowds are not bad. Recommend.
