Cathedral treasury

The treasury of the cathedral of St Domnio is positioned at the south-eastern side of the church. It contains rather rich art collection like medieval icons, old manuscripts, and liturgical luxurious attires. Among the valuable things is the town’s oldest Evangelistarium (manuscript of the Gospel)dating from 7th and 8th century and text named Historia Salonitana, chronic written by the Toma archdeacon of Split.

In the treasury visitors can see as well Madonna paintings of great artistic quality made in a Romanesque-Byzantine style.

Cathedral treasury is, therefore, one of the important treasure houses of the Eastern Dalmatian coast.
