Forum

The main square of Roman Iadera where the entire public life happened, is located in front of the St. Donatus church and the Archbishop’s Palace. The square consists of a spacious sidewalk that is surround by porches on three sides and which once led to tabernas, trade and crafts premises. On south side, there used to be a monumental basilica while west side used to have a raised area for Jupiter, Juno and Minerva temples. At the foot of the Capitol there were public sacrifice altars, wells and two triumphal columns that were used as ‘pillars of shame’ in the Middle Age. One of these pillars is still preserved. Zadar Forum is one of the largest squares in the Adriatic. As a proof of its construction that began in 1st century BC there is an inscription with the name of Augustus’ consul who was assigned to Illyria. Throughout the history, this used to have different Christian buildings built on it, following the church of St. Donatus and finally it became known as Kampa-a medieval square with a Renaissance water tank underneath.
