Zadar Cathedral

From Wikipedia:

"The Cathedral of St. Anastasia (Croatian: Katedrala sv. Stošije) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Zadar, Croatia. It is the seat of the Archdiocese of Zadar, and the largest church in all of Dalmatia (the coastal region of Croatia).
The church's origins date back to a Christian basilica built in the 4th and 5th centuries, while much of the currently standing three-nave building was constructed in the Romanesque style during the 12th and 13th centuries. The site has been submitted to UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites."

 

Unfortunately, photography was not allowed inside.

A very fine piece of stonework Tom. Why no pics inside I wonder?
Tom Wilson: I don't know why they don't allow photography - if it was for during services only, I could understand, but they lose out on a lot of free publicity!
A great building I'm sure Tom, basilicas based on converted Roman market places.
Tom Wilson: This one is a little away from the Forum, but I've not doubt that some of the stone was used in its construction - perhaps the odd pillar, too!
16 and 24 spokes on the rose windows... anything significant there, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Simply accommodating different numbers of images of apostles and saints I assume, Ayush - I haven't been able to find specific information smile
Two very fine rose windows there Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I'd like to have had a shot of them from the inside.
