Cathedral of St. Stephen in Hvar

The Cathedral of St. Stephen in Hvar is a Roman Catholic cathedral in the town of Hvar, on the island of Hvar in Split-Dalmatia region on the Adriatic coast of Croatia. The Cathedral is located on the eastern side of the town square, at the far end of the Pjaca, where two parts of the town meet. It was built on the site of an early 6th century Christian church and a later Benedictine convent of St Mary. The shrine of the cathedral is still a remainder of a Gothic church from the 14th century. Its 15th century pulpit, the stone multi-panelled images of St. Luke and The Flagellation of Christ, as well as the late Gothic crucifix, have all been preserved. The Cathedral of Hvar has three aisles with a 17th century bell tower.
