DIOCLETIANS PALACE the heart of the city which is a combination of a luxury villa for the roman Emperor, a Hellenistic town and a Roman military camp (castrum). Diocletian's Palace has four main entrances at each side marked with gates named the Golden, the Silver, the Iron and the Brass gate. The remains of the Palace are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Where can you catch the most impressive view of Diocletian's Palace? At the top of the bell tower of Saint Domnius cathedral which dates from the fourth century. The bell tower is 57 meter high so you can catch a breathtaking panoramic view of the nearby islands such as Solta and Brac on the south side, or if you turn to the west side a view on Marjan hill which we refer as the lungs of Split.
