On the site of the first-century Roman baths and an earlier basilica, the Cathedral of the Assumption is a Romanesque structure from the 12th century. Note the rare early-Christian carving of two birds eating a fish on the first column next to the apse. The left nave features a Gothic chapel from the 15th century, with the coats of arms of the Frankopan princes who used it as place of worship.
The 18th-century campanile topped with an angel statue is shared between the Cathedral and the adjoining St Quirinus, an early Romanesque church built of white stone and dedicated to the town's patron saint.
