Cathedral of St. James in Sibenik due to its exceptional value was included in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage in 2000. The idea of building this cathedral is dating from 1298, when Sibenik got its own diocese and the city. The decision to build the beginning of the preparatory work was made in 1402. Construction, however, only began in 1431 and lasted intermittently until 1536. In the first decade on it work Venetian Gothic builders and Sibenik stonemason masters. During this time, they built the southern and northern wall, gothic parts of the façade and both portals. At the end became a triple-nave basilica with three apses and a dome (32 m high inside).
