St. Mark's Cathedral, Korcula Town
Trip Planner: Europe / Croatia / Dalmatia / Dubrovnik-Neretva County / Korcula Island / Korcula Town / St. Mark's Cathedral
Admire the Gothic-Renaissance style of St. Mark's Cathedral, which dominates the heart of the old town. The statuesque facade of the church, completed in the 16th century, is decorated with intricate reliefs and carvings. Wander inside to view two paintings by the Italian artist Tintoretto and a bronze statue by Ivan Mestrovic. Ascend the bell tower steps for a panoramic view of the old town and the coastline. Although not long, the spiral staircase is very narrow and steep, a potential problem for the elderly and the disabled. Make St. Mark's Cathedral part of your personalized Korcula Town itinerary using our Korcula Town tour planner.

St. Mark's Cathedral Reviews
Really lovely architecture in the middle of this incredibly pretty town. Definitely worth a wander round if you are visiting Korkula. more »
Ne velika katedrala ali svakako ugodan osjećaj kao i u svim sličnim vjerskim objektima. Pogled na more...izvrstan. more »Not a great cathedral but certainly a pleasant feeling as well as in all similar religious objects. Sea view... An excellent.
You can enter for free to the church when there is a mass. Generally everyday at 7pm. But if you want to go to the tower you must pay 20kunas. Is worth it! The view is incredible!
It is one of the more important landmarks in Korcula. Old town was built in a way that walls surround the town at the waterfront, and then everything is built uphill from around the peninsula towards the top of it. All houses and little streets converge at the single point - the cathedral. So while cathedral itself is nothing spectacular, it's positioning and historical value make it worth visiting.
