The whole of the old town of Zadar is worth a look, from the impressive walls, the old catholic church and the cathedral, Zadar has a very interesting history from the time of the Roman and Byzantine eras as well as the Venetian occupation.

A very nice church and well maintained. Although damaged by earthquakes and the 1991/1992 war it has been repaired. Worth a visit.
