The Church of St. Donatus (Zadar)

The church of St. Donatus is a circular pre-Romanesque church, that used to be called the Church of St. Trinity up until the 15th century when they renamed it after the bishop who had it built. The first ever mention of the church dates from 10th century writings of the Byzantine emperor Constantine Porphyrogenitus. Because of its unique cylindrical shape, the double interior space and a height of only 27 meters, this church is regarded as one of the most famous and important European pre-Romanesque churches. Most of the architectural ornaments, as well as monolithic pillars inside the church, are of the ancient origin and mostly come from the demolished Roman Forum. Today, the church is mainly used for musical programs, due to its extraordinary acoustics.
