More enthralling than the Dolcetian palace

I really wish the encroachments should not have been allowed around the temple. The place is historic.

Cheap in. By all means stop if you're nearby but don't go out of your way to see this. Just one little room.

What a wonderful survival from the third century. I've been to what seems like hundreds of Roman temples, but can only count on a few fingers the number of temples that survived with the vaulted stone roofs intact. This building is remarkable in that it looks much as it did when first built. The temple of Jupiter was converted into... More

This can be hard to get into. The trick is to go over to the cathedral and ask for the key, and when they say it's closed, just persevere. We managed to get in twice. The temple is now a church, but apart from the Mestrovic statue of the baptist having replaced the figure of the god, this looks much... More

This is a small temple that started as the Temple of Jupiter but is now dedicated to John the Baptist it has a large bronze of him opposite the entrance, there is an entrance fee (15 kuna I believe do not quote me). It was part of out tour so we visited it.

A popular tourist spot, a charge is made to enter and no photographs are allowed inside, unless you are clever. History everywhere, but glad we made it here.

The simplicity of the temple's structure is enhanced by the intricacy of the carving. These include the ones at the entrance, the ceiling and the baptismal pool and grand statue in the centre. My personal favorite was the work of the four sides of the baptismal pool.

Saved over the Millenia by the fact that it is was a church with the most outstanding part being the original Roman ceiling. Built as a temple, no expense was spared and it is a reminder today of what was achieved.

My wife and I bought a combo ticket which included Temple of Jupiter. It was kind of underwhelming and proved to be a fast thing to do. If you had to pay for this alone it would have been worse.

Takes ages to find and will take you about a minute to visit. May as well do it if you have bought the ticket covering the palace/cathedral/bell tower.
