The Cathedral of St. Mark [1][2] (Croatian: Katedrala sv. Marka) also called Korčula Cathedral, is the Roman Catholic cathedral of Korčula, Croatia.[3]

It was built by local masters from the fifteenth century to the mid-sixteenth century. It is at the forefront of the city, at the top of the peninsula. In 1557, an organ was placed in the cathedral. Tintoretto painted the altarpiece. The portal is the work of master Bonino from Milan. A new organ was built in 1787 by Vinko Klisevic. In modern times, a bronze statue of Jesus Christ, the work of Croatian sculptor Frane Krsinica, was added to the baptistery.[4]
