Trogir Cathedral

The cathedral is layered like the rest of Trogir. The original church, dedicated to St Lawrence, was destroyed by the Saracens, so this church, mostly built in the 13th century is also called St Lawrence officially. But no one actually calls it that; it's known as Sveti Ivan, or St John, after a 12th century bishop.

The outside is Romanesque, and far more interesting than the Gothic interior, but I do love this statue of God sticking his head out of the ceiling.
