St. Catherine's Church

The Church of St Catherine of Alexandria is the most famous Baroque church in Croatia. It was built between 1620 and 1632 on the site of a small 14th-century Dominican church. In the 17th century, the Jesuits, to whom the previous church had been given, completely rebuilt it. In addition to the church, they built a monastery (where the Dvori gallery Klovićevi is located today). After the abolition of the Jesuits in 1773, the St Catherine church was ceded to the parish of Saint-Marc in 1783 and became a university church in 1874.

St Mary Church

The Mary church dates from the 14th century. In 1740, some baroque altars were added to the building. The church owes its current state to the renovation that took place after the earthquake in 1880.
