Saint Euphemia Cathedral, Rovinj

(4.4/5 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.

  • In the heart of the beautiful town of Porec, close to the sea and although in a rather cold and windy day, we admired this monumental complex very well preserved with all its rooms including the remains of an early Christian basilica and Roman finds, besides being hopped on the bell tower where there are still beautiful chimes. Not to be missed.

  • The grounds and the cathedral are quite picturesque. You can get lovely views of the coast and of the ocean. 
  • Very nice church that in a eay simbolizes the town. To get there we took a nice walk all over the old part of town. To recomend for sure.
