Description

The main focus of this tour is the palace built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian in the 3rd century AD, between 295 and 305. The structure was built using high-quality limestone that was brought from the island of Brač and nearby quarries. The layout resembles a somewhat distorted rectangle, which covers an area of 3000 square meters. The palace combines the functions of a luxurious villa with those of a military camp and, in its time, it was the central monument to the Roman Empire. Today, it is one of the best preserved remains of late Roman architecture and, as such, it was included in the UNESCO register of World Cultural Heritage in 1979.
