In 1298th in Sibenik's diocese was founded.

The three - Francesco di Giacomo, Georgius Mathei Dalmaticus and Niccolò di Giovanni Fiorentino - developed a structure built entirely from stone and using unique construction techniques. In the cathedrak are decorative elements of Gothic and Renaissance art.
