Saint Chrysogonus Church is without a doubt one of the finer churches that remain in the city and is particularly enjoyable to admire from the outside. The apse of the church has been brilliantly preserved and many of the finer details to the architecture are still there to be seen, including some lovely old frescoes. There used to be a monastery attached to the church, although this was unfortunately destroyed during World War Two.

Madrid

San Crisógono es el martir patrono de Zadar y a quien está dedicado esta iglesia. Se lo suele representar a caballo, usando una armadura y con una lanza; siendo utilizada esta imagen en el escudo de la ciudad.

La fachada de la iglesia es bastante sencilla a pesar de que en la parte superior hace gala de sus arcos cerrados. Por dentro, el ábside es de forma semicircular y tiene una decoración llamativa. Junto con el campanario, la iglesia sobrevivió a los bombardeos durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Merece la pena una visita.

Playa de Gandia

Construida durante el siglo XII, lleva el nombre del patrono de la ciudad. La particularidad es que es una de las iglesias cuya torre esta inacabada desde el siglo XV. Su fachada no impresiona tanto por fuera como otros iglesias de Croacia, pero por dentro aun conserva unos frescos preciosos de estilo bizantino. Está un poco escondida en el centro histórico, para llegar hay que tomar la calle Pape Aleksandra III, la de detrás de la Catedral.
