Pula Cathedral

This sanctuary built by the first Christians underwent countless destructions, ransacking and remodelling before acquiring its current appearance under the Venetians. It now displays a sober Renaissance façade, topped with a perfectly regular triangular pediment of antique inspiration. The interior reveals an immense central nave lined with columns topped with capitals. The main altar is a 3C sarcophagus. The cathedral steeple is late 17C.
