  • Is 4 km north of the town of Rovinj, a stone's throw from the old railway tracks. Probably built between the 8th and 9th century, presents a cross plan and has a Bell Tower on the northern side added later. In the 16th century were bricked up the aisles, the West wing was considerably reduced and the façade, completely redone, two rectangular Windows were added. In recent excavations in the Church were found parts of Romanesque ecclesiastical furniture. Hard to find.

  • Coincidentally we came in this little church, which today (I think) is urban showroom. A beautiful work, created an artist in collaboration with students was demonstrated. (Video installation and sculpture).

  • The Church is hidden and difficult to find. To get there you take a small staircase because the entrance is not at the same level as the opposite square. Resembles that of St. Benedict. Same hole steeple, pet door, two side Windows. The medieval church of St Thomas the Apostle dates from 1388 closed. Dates back to the 14th century and belongs to the confraternity of St Francis and unfortunately during our visit was closed but they say there are stucco works on the ceiling and scenes of the crucifixion on the walls. Anyway I do not understand why the titles are the churches in Rovinj were given in English here on Tripadvisor. So no one knows in the area and it is hard to actually figure what it is because the translations are often misleading.
