At it's peak it had a population of 60 000 making it one of the largest towns in the Roman empire. With the emergence of Christianity in Dalmatia, it had its own Christian community that built many churches whose remains we can see today. The beginnings of Croatian history are very closely tied to this place and together with the numerous ruins of Roman buildings that include a large amphitheatre, a theatre, city walls, temples and so on, it makes one of the most interesting archaeological sites in Croatia and region and well worth the visit.
