It is built in Gothic-Renaissance style, completed in 15th century at the place of other church from 13th century. Cathedral was built by local masters and craftsman of stone masonry, very well known in renaissance and baroque Dubrovnik and Venice.

The Cathedral Sveti MarkoMost famous among them was stone mason Marko Andijic who completed cathedral's tower and cupola (1481) as well as elegant ciborium above main altar. Cathedral's facade is decorated with the truly beautiful fluted rose and various relief and statues, while main door - portal is framed by statues of Adam and Eve and figures of lions.
