Saint Euphemia Cathedral, Rovinj

(4.5/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
At Saint Euphemia Cathedral 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. Plan your Saint Euphemia Cathedral visit and explore what else you can see and do in Rovinj using our Rovinj vacation route planner.

  • Coming from the harbour followed by a smaller rise to the landmark, the Church of Sveta Eufemija. From there, you have a wonderful view over the Harbour and the town. A real eye-catcher is the statue on the top of the Church. You acts as a "Weather vane" and is often overlooked. The trail itself leads through many small alleys and side streets.

  • We have visited the church only from outside. View from the terrace around the church is astonishing.  more »
