Broken faces on the Facades of the St. James Cathedral in Šibenik.

The Cathedral of St. James (CroatianKatedrala sv. Jakova) in ŠibenikCroatia is a triple-nave basilica with three apses and a dome (32 m high inside) in the city of Šibenik, Croatia. It is the church of the Catholic Church in Croatia, and the see of the Šibenik diocese. It is also the most important architectural monument of the Renaissance in the entire country. Since 2000, the Cathedral has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

It is often mistakenly known as “St Jacob’s”, because Croatian, like many other languages, uses the same name for both “James” and “Jacob”. It is dedicated to Saint James the Greater.
