The symbol of the city of Zadar and the most famous monumental edifice in Croatia from the early Middle Ages (9th c.). Round pre-Romanesque church which was called the Church of the Holy Trinity until the 15th c., and from that time on carries the name of Saint Donat, by the bishop who had it built.

The church was mentioned for the first time in mid 10th c. in the documents of the Byzantine emperor Konstantin Porfirogenet. Today its space is used, due to its extraordinary acoustic features, for musical performances ("Musical Evenings in Saint Donat").
