The St Jacob Sibenik Croatia

St. Jacobs Cathedral in Sibenik is a unique monument of sacral architecture,

added to UNESCO's list of world heritage sights in the year 2000.
The cathedral was built on the south side of the cities old central square.
The idea of building a cathedral dates back to 1298 when Sibenik gained its own diocese and the status of a city.

Building of the cathedral only began in 1431 and lasted with a few pauses until 1536.
 Juraj Matejev Dalmatinac (Georfius Mathei Dalmaticus), was educated at the Arts Academy in Venice,
and was invited to manage the building of the temple.
A master in the late gothic era, he changed the original conception of the church,
and under his direction the enclaves, the sanctuary, the apse which is decorated with
72 stone chiselled portraits of citizens who at that time lived in Sibenik and the sacristies were built.
Making the cathedral even more magnificent is the fact that it was built entirely with stone, without using any other materials.
