Second attraction to visit after the city walls; signaled by tourist signs, it can be easily accessed to admire the city below and, from the bell tower, the gulf of Trieste up to Grado. Presence of frescoes and richly decorated organ.

Molto rimaneggiato nel corso del tempo, è un edificio ottagonale rivestito esternamente di intonaco bianco, che ben figura sullo sfondo blu del mare, in posizione sopraelevata dietro il duomo. Una volta internamente era tutto affrescato e ancora si conserva qualche traccia di affreschi più tardi sulle pareti, mentre il soffitto è andato completamente perduto. Bella la vasca battesimale al centro.

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.
