Sibenik, Croatia

Sibenick is located in one of the Adriatic's most naturally protected harbors. The hillside city fans out like an amphitheater.

The most famous
cathedral of St James, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sits right by the water where we docked our boat. The Cathedral was built completely of limestone and marble in 1431-1536.  There were 71 human faces -believed to represent local Sibenik residents - carved into the cathedral's outer side.

 We climbed to the hilltop where one can see the remains of the wall built to fend off Turks.  It also gave a nice broad view of the city below.
