Bell Tower information
The Cathedral of St George's freestanding, 46.5m bell tower, built in 1609, was clearly modelled on the campanile of San Marco in Venice and provides a fabulous backdrop to many a town photo. Its 147 rickety stairs can be climbed for superb views of the town and harbour. Next to it, the octagonal 17th-century baptistery (krstilnica) contains altars and paintings. It is now sometimes used as an exhibition space. To the east is a 200m-long stretch of the 15th-century town wall .
