Photographer's Note

View of St Francis' Church and Franciscan Monastey
The oldest Dalmatian church built in the Gothic style (1283). It represents a type of, so called, Gothic monastic church characterized by a single nave with a raised shrine. In the 18th century the appearance of the church was changed. Behind the main altar from 1672 there is a former shrine and in it choir stalls richly adorned by carvings in the floral Gothic style from the year 1394, made by Giacomo da Borga Sansepolrco. The sacristy, which follows the choir stalls, is very important for the Croatian history because it was there that the peace was made between the Venetian Republic and Hungarian-Croatian king Ludovik Anžuvinac, and by that act the Venetians gave up their pretensions to Dalmatia.?info www.zadar.
