Split: Church Sv. Rocco


Situated on the north east side of the Peristil is the Church of Saint Rocco. Dating to 1516, the Renaissance church is one of many churches in Dalmatia named after Saint Rocco who is said to have helped protect people against the Plague. Originally, the chapel was a family dwelling and was converted by the Croatian Poet and Humanist, Marko Marulic. The church is now the Tourist Information centre.
