  • I did not go inside cause for me all the church are the same. But if go to Rovinj you must go uphill. The path with open market full of hand made object. The view at the church is just the reward. Tak...  more »
  • I was already in many churches and also happy to see her over with me. Some churches are pretty prepared and decorated, 'but not good to feel' and the atmosphere is so cool that you want most right back out. Here however I felt very well and had the good fortune to observe when I back hid me in order not to disturb the ceremony a wedding. A great moment. When I really enjoy the visit to a church, I also like to light a candle and thinking of my nearest and dearest. Here I did this and it touched me directly.

  • The steps of the tower don't inspire much confidence. They're sturdy enough, but why aren't they of perfect quality? As you need to pay 20 KN to go up I'd expect the steps to be in great shape. I actually did enjoy the adrenaline rush but hey, going up a tower should be safe!
  • The church is absolutely beautiful inside and is well worth a visit. There are a few ways to get there, up the steep narrow streets with lots of small shops lining them, or up the winding walkway. Glorious viewing points surrounding the church with views of the sea and surrounding islands.
  • An amazingly beautiful church and artwork. Highly recommended to climb up to the tower for some fantastic views. Try and avoid being up there on the hour as the bells are very very loud. Also, I thought it was very disrespectful to have a man on his mobile phone while selling merchandise inside the church.
  • Spectacular little church on top of Rovinj Hill. The tower provides great views of the waterfront!
  • From the outside very nice place. Definitely worth a visit. Highest place in Rovinj itself.
