Šibenik is the only town in Croatia and one of the few cities in the world with two monuments listed on UNESCO's list of protected cultural heritage sites. The most important monument in Šibenik, known in European architecture and listed as a world heritage site of UNESCO, is Cathedral of St. James dating from the 15th and 16th centuries. Five generations were working on that building for more than a hundred years, creating the perfect proportions and the impression that it was cast out of one piece. The Cathedral of St. James is the only one such building in Europe built of stone without the use of binder mortars and wooden constructive elements.
