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.

  • Really a beautiful location, a huge Church which unfortunately are closed. Beautiful outside is beautiful the landscape in which it is immersed. The roaring sea.

  • A significant climb but we'll worth it. Church closed pants View s very good delightful town Fairly limited retail but it was Dec 
  • Slipping in the rain and strong winds from the parking lot of the port could barely reach the Basilica of easier hill climbing. Church with the Bell Tower of 60 meters in height, located on a hill in the old town of the 18th-century Baroque style. Was full of stories about the execution of Saint Euphemia. Port Phillip Basilica from smoking, Adriatic Sea, atmosphere.
