Mnostvonovinara, od poznatih Josip Jovic, Josko Celan, Jeffrey Kuhner... I puno lijepoga svijeta. 

Viteski je Sinj jako jako lijep gradic. Otkrice, u svakom pogledu.. U malom parku pored crkve isamostana osim drazesne fontane nalaze se i tri biste istaknutih Sinjana: s jedne je strane bistapisca Dinka Simunovica, s druge akademika Stjepana Gunjace, a u sredini bista Dusana Zanka,istaknutog kulturnog djelatnika (1904.1980.) Iz Sinja je i Miko Tripalo, ali i dr. fra Mirko Covic,Mikin gimnazijski profesor, kasnije becki emigrant, koji je nenadano umro u Becu na dan Titovasprovoda!) Grad, vitesko natjecanje, konje ... to treba vidjeti i dozivjeti.
