St Mark’s Cathedral Tours

Situated in the center of Korcula’s old town, and hemmed in by a web of streets, is Korcula’s St Marks Cathedral. The Gothic-Renaissance style church was completed in the 15th century at the hands of local artisans and with the help of Italian masters. The result is a façade featuring a handful of curious characters — such as a squatting Adam and Eve, and a wide-eyed elephant — and an interior filled with a collection of impressive artwork, including two paintings by Tintoretto.

Given the tight city quarters, it can be hard to grasp the cathedral’s grandness from just beyond its front doors, or even from within. With that in mind, get a better perspective — a 360-degree one, in fact — by heading up to St Mark’s cupola-topped bell tower. There, you can take in unparalleled views of the town below, coast beyond, and even islands dotting the crystal blue sea in the distance.

Practical Info

To reach the top of the bell tower, you must ascend quite a few flights of narrow, stop-light-controlled steps, so it may not be an ideal activity for little ones or those with any physical limitations. Also, a heads-up: the bell tower chimes regularly and very loudly, so prepare to be startled.
