Church and Bell Tower of St. Anselm
The parish Church of St Anselm, which is the former Nin cathedral, is located in the center of Nin. It was built in the 6th century. Through history it suffered damage several times, nevertheless it was restored and assumed its present-day appearance in the 18th century. The bell tower, which was made from treated stone, dates from the 13th century and stands to the west of the church. It was restored in the 17th century. On one side of the Bell Tower the chapel of St Marcela called „Our Lady of Zečevo“ leans against the church. The church is from the 15th century and contains the statue of Our Lady with the Divine Child, as well as a Renaissance tombstone of Juraj Divnić. The church of Our Lady of Zečevo is the main annual holy place in the Zadar diocese – it is celebrated on the first Monday before the Ascension.
