The church of St. Barbara is a monument of gothic architecture. It is a single-naved church. The building of the church started at about 1400. Above the main entrance there is a gothic niche with a sculpture of St. Nicholas, the work of the Italian artist Bonino from Milan.

The gothic window with the votive sculpture in its bottom part was ordered by Šibenik's doctor Marco in 1419 and was placed in the north wall. It's a unique example of medieval relief featuring a doctor on the eastern Adriatic coast.

Today there is a little museum in the church of St. Barbara, housing some very important art works from the period between the 14th and the 17th century.
