Part of the wall surrounding the city
Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, at one point in history the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian.
The "gate" we entered the city through to our hotel. The wall to the right in this picture you get a glimpse of the red door to our hotel.
The St. Francis's Monastery Grounds The courtyard was surrounded with standing tombs of prominent citizens of Split as early as 1400. As we walked and realized many of these people were buried before America was discovered!
Some of the standing tombs.
It was the first I have ever seen where the tombs were standing and built into the wall.
Sitting on some of the carved stone that were in the foundation of the ruins of a church. The foundation was built using the ruins from the roman buildings from the 400's The church was empty so it was just the structure but still amazing to visit if you love the history of Christianity.
Check out the round pillars at the foundation!
Staircase and view down from the balcony Inside the ruins
Some shots around town
Love the blue sky in this picture of the outside of the Byzantine church built in the 800's AD
Sunset on the Adriatic Sea Isn't the yellow beautiful!
