Cathedral of St. Stephen (Hvar Cathedral) Tours

Cathedral of St. Stephen (Hvar Cathedral)
There’s no better place to take in the essence of Hvar than in its main plaza while admiring the Cathedral of St. Stephen also known as the Hvar Cathedral. Set upon a backdrop of green hillside, the church you see today was built between the 16th and 17th centuries, with elements of an even older church still preserved inside. 

Though the cathedral boasts a relatively humble interior, it is noted for its attractive altars, late Renaissance paintings, and 15th-century wooden choir stalls. For most, though, it’s the exterior that really leaves the biggest impression, with its scalloped rooftop and four-story, 17th-century bell tower that both grandly watch over the expansive limestone plaza that rolls out to the Adriatic Sea.

Practical Info

Though Hvar may be warm and waterside, note that women may be expected to cover up their shoulders in order to enter the cathedral. Take advantage of your central Hvar location to check out other city sights, including the hilltop fortress, and the Arsenal, a naval building-turned-theater. The island of Hvar is an easy day trip from Split. Ferries will take you to the town of Stari Grad or to the ferry terminal in Hvar town, which is a short walk away from the plaza and Hvar Cathedral.
Address: Trg Sv .Stjepana, Hvar 21450, Croatia

Walking Tour through historical Hvar

Walking Tour through historical Hvar

So little and so rich Hvar is like a diamond of Adriatic crown. The best is to start the visit from cathedral’s square renaissance bell tower which is an unforgettable sight in the evenings when its white stone illuminated by the last light of the day and you can see right through the structure’s narrow arches. From there you take directly to the St. Stephen’s Cathedral and then down to the Town’s “place” (central square) - the center of Hvar’s social world, with cafes, restaurants, shops and the 16th-century fountain. After a short rest in one of outside coffees keep going to magnificent Renaissance monastery with a beautiful bell-tower, and then visit Hvar’s Loggia, which once was the Venetian governor’s palace. Moreover, finish your trip with Hvar Town’s main square with a stairway leading to the Porta di Datallo. Can you imagine that it was a Venetian fortress from the 1500s? It is a great pleasure of real history!
