The Cathedral of St James in Šibenik,Croatia.



It bears witness to the considerable exchanges in the field of monumental arts between Northern Italy, Dalmatia and Tuscany in the 15th and 16th centuries. The architects developed  structure built entirely from stone and using unique construction techniques for the vaulting and the dome of the Cathedral. The form and the decorative elements such as remarkable frieze decorated with 71 sculptured faces of men, women, and children illustrate the successful fusion of Gothic and Renaissance art.
Date of Inscription: 2000
