Awesome view around the half island. This is a cemetery Chapel though.

Lovely place up on top of the hill away from the hoards of tourists. There are benches under the shade of big trees just outside, and the cemetery has nice views out over the adriaric sea.

Beautiful stone St. George's Church and cemetery behind the walls of Primosten. Beautiful vantage point.

Stunning church in one of the most beautiful islet towns in Dalmacija. The walk up the pedestrianised stone pathway to the church is wonderful, and the views from the top breathtaking. The sparkling white stone of the church itself is complimented by the terracotta tiled roof. And the cemetery is filled with luxurious family vaults adorned with brightly colored flowers overlooking the azure blue Adriatic. A place of genuine beauty and serenity, and must for any itinerary of central Dalmacija.

Very nicely arranged surroundings of the church. A neatly path from the market (by the way there is a non-payable toilet). The interior is not so rich, but it is a beautiful church. Beautiful view of the surrounding area (the sea, the city ...), although the viewpoint is a cemetery (it is not good if we atep on a grave to take a good picture of Surrounding nature...). Otherwise it's worth a visit.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
