Euphrasius Basilica, Porec
(4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Visit Euphrasius Basilica to see one of the best-preserved early Christian cathedral complexes in the world. The 6th century bishop Euphrasius ordered the construction of the church, which is now a World Heritage Site. Walk along the two rows of marble columns with richly sculpted Byzantine and Romanesque capitals. Admire the only surviving depiction of the Mother of God in an early-Christian western basilica. Look for the mosaic of Mary and child sitting on the heavenly throne in the vault over the apse. Don't miss the marble ciborium, modeled on the one in St. Mark's in Venice. Climb up to the steeple and take in views of Porec and its surroundings. To visit Euphrasius Basilica and other attractions in Porec, use our Porec trip builder.

  • Either just to have a look at the basilica, on in the summertime also attend to some concerts. Some really great acoustic concerts I have been able to enjoy there. 
  • Did not know the historical importance of this sight until we toured it. On a back street. Beautiful building and interesting stories. Climbed the bell tour for great views of the city. 
  • What can we say about a 4th century basilica? It is a must. There is so much to see. You follow the indications and you will be able to visit it all. Better if you hire a guide or stay not far from on...  more »
