Very beautiful church in Porec, listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. There is also a great view of the city. I highly recommend visiting it when you're in Porec.

The church feels as if it has been there a long time. Beautiful mosaics and a nice place to reflect. If you have some extra energy try going up the tower for a fantastic view of the surrounding area....it's worth the climb.

A very interesting exhibition showing the development of the church throughout the centuries, with beautiful mosaics, wooden sculptures and archaeological site from Roman times.

Get transported back to early Christianity. This is a self-guided visit, and the complex offers something for everyone: mosaics, crypts, sea views, bishops' thrones, and a bell-tower with amazing city views. The mosaics in the apse of the basilica alone are stunning.

Seriously ancient building and relics, view from the tower is terrific. Might be a bit crazy at busy times, but if you can get there when it's quiet it's beautiful.

Astonishing, 15 centuries of Christianity on one small site. Really exiting. Mosaics are formidable and the view from the tower is memorable.
