Church of St. Euphemia, Rovinj

4.6
At Church of St. Euphemia see the painted sarcophagus and relics of St. Euphemia, the patron saint of the town. The Baroque church was built in 1736 over the remains of an older church dedicated to St. George. The statue of St. Euphemia, which serves as a weather vane, greets you from the 60 m (197ft) high bell tower. Enter the church, go to the right and find the altar of St. Euphemia. Look behind it to see the sarcophagus painted with scenes of the martyrdom of the saint. Climb the bell tower, which resembles the tower of St Mark's Basilica in Venice. On a clear day you can see the Alps. Put Church of St. Euphemia and other Rovinj attractions into our Rovinj trip itinerary planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Back at a distance of years, I found the site well maintained and valued. Priceless the Belvedere and a mandatory stop for those who visit the old Rovinj.

  • Beautiful church. The song ‘Nicole bianche,’ a haunting personal favorite, played as we prepared to climb the tower. It appeared straightforward and easy - no warnings in sight - and I walked in enthu...  more »
  • The Baroque church of Rovinj, on the highest point of the peninsula, is the patron saint of Rovinj. Euphemia, dedicated. The sarcophagus of the saints is located behind the high altar. The high church tower is very reminiscent of a Venetian campanile. Which is probably due to the very changeable power relations of the past two centuries. A climb is worth it because of the beautiful panoramic view, then downstream through the old town.

  • It's a religious church that lies to people for mind control and money taking that's why 1 stat. But overall its a nice looking church you can see from all parts of town because of course they made it on top of the hill. It has some beautiful sights from its terrace. Its worth climbing up to it and enjoying the sight of sea. They even found an older church that was built long time ago and dirt covered it. It has some tunnels under it. I found this fake bullets on the ground, they were filming some action scenes here with Selma Hayek and Samuel L Jackson.
  • Nice building. Great view. Haven't been insider, a wedding was being performed
  • Stunning view! We just opened shampagne bottle on terrace in front of church at sunset..amazing
  • Nice church. Would not recommend climbing to the top of the bell tower because the stairs are in very bad condition and made out of wood.
  • Beautiful church and amazing small town. Church was under construction but anyway view from top is amazing.
