Let's explore the interior of one of the most important buildings in the old town of Korčula where a work made by Tintoretto is the main altarpiece. Situated at the very top of the town and right on the center of it! St. Marc's Cathedral is the most attractive gothic-renaissance building in the old town of Korčula. It was built by local stonemasons for 200 years from the 14th to the 16th with the support of Italian masters. The most famous local stonemason was Marko Andrijić whose masterpieces are in the upper part of the bell tower and the ciborium above the high altar in the central nave, dedicated to St. Mark, the patron saint of Korčula. The gothic main portal was built by the Italian master, Bonino da Milano. The southern lateral nave is dedicated to St. James, while the northern one is to St. John, with the adjacent St. Rocco chapel. All main official church ceremonies are held in this cathedral, from weddings, baptisms, confirmations to first communions. During summertime, it's where concerts of classical music are held and in September traditionally the opening of the baroque music festival that hosts musicians from all over the world. Choirs and A-cappella groups much appreciate the ambience and acoustics of the Cathedral when the music takes over the center of the town.
