The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (Velika Gospa).
The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (Velika Gospa) is situated in front of Rector's Palace. The first variant of the church was destroyed during the earthquake of 1667. The restoration works of the building were finished only in 1716. Travellers are usually offered to visit the treasure-house, where they can look at the shrine with the relics of St Blasius and 138 golden and silver items of the 11th and the 17th centuries. The cathedral is also the location of a true masterpiece - 'The Ascension of the Virgin' - made in Titian's atelier. Many experts claim that the work was created by the master himself.
