Saint Euphemia Cathedral, Rovinj

4.5
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Rovinj
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. Put Saint Euphemia Cathedral and other Rovinj attractions into our Rovinj trip itinerary planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

    You should visit the Church Sveta Eufemija at the highest point of the beautiful old town of Rovinj's best in the late afternoon. Then stopping in one of the many nice restaurants and Cafés in the alleys around the Church. The crowning is a sensational sunset above the Church Sveta Eufemija overlooking the sea.

    The Cattedrae offers a great view of Rovinj. Climb the Bell Tower is kinda an adventure, the wooden steps "century" have a small sense of thrill. The entrance to the Cathedral is free, you pay 30 Kunas instead to climb the tower.
