We celebrated our wedding (July 2023) at Château de Tilly and welcomed 220 people. We were able to enjoy the outdoor terrace for cocktails then the orangery for the evening and brunch. Our guests (and ourselves) were transported by the magic of the place for a weekend. We appreciated the responsiveness, availability and professionalism of the team: they are experienced and supported us to enable our projects (and dreams) to come true. We appreciated the quality of the service and the rooms on site as well as the delicate attention given to the bride and groom. We highly recommend Château de Tilly.

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
