It looks pretty good, great to see such architecture in Croatia, but to be honest I was not blown away by it. It was alright. Worth the visit if you're in the area, but nothing more than that.

This structure is mind-blowing in stature. How things like this last is amazing. My husband and I did a small-walking tour and thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history and able to ask questions freely with just us and the tour guide. Definitely worth a visit!
