I'm guna go off for a second, ok? (This may spill over into the comments if I run out of space, but keep reading)

Some context first: This is St. Dominus Bell Tower in Split, Croatia. The tower is attached to the (active) Cathedral of St. Dominus, and cathedrals are the central church of a given region. Though the whole history of complex of Diocletian's Palace is a little hard to follow, the complex was started sometime in the lat 3rd-early to 4th centuries, with the cathedral being built and consecrated in the 7th century (and I saw a few notes that it is believed that my be the oldest Catholic cathedral in the word that is still in use in the original structure (good-quality stone, for the win). The bell tower was added in the 11th century. The tower is 57m (187ft).

Ok now, given what you just read.... on a scale of 1-to-getthefuckoutofhere, how likely do you think you would be to disrespect this historic religious monument? Now, I hold "regular" tourists and "influencer/blogger" tourists to two different standards of behavior. At the top of the tower, I encountered a woman who had similar equipment to me, due to several cues she was giving off, I took her to be someone in the "travel space" who was looking to document her visit to the tower. She was irritated with the hoards of tourists up there for the sunset (which was beautiful, by the way - more pics to come later this week) - which I get because we're hoping for people-free shots, but sometimes that's not going to happen.... and our rights as people who document our travels for the internet do not supersede the rights of people who are just there to see the sights. Though I thought it odd she would be so visibly salty, I don't know her life or luck so I stopped trying to be friendly and started to climb my way down. Turns out, I got a wee bit scared on the way down so I needed to stop on each landing to "take some photos" (aka, recompose myself).

Manaca Iznaga bell tower
.
The Manaca Iznaga bell tower was built in the early 19th century by one of Valle de los Ingenios’ wealthiest sugar plantation owners. The bell in the 147-foot, 7-story tower was used to announce the beginning and ending of work days and also served as a lookout for fires and runaway slaves. The Manaca Iznaga tower was the tallest lookout tower built in the Caribbean sugar region.
