At Church of St. Euphemia 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.

  • Best to leave early in the morning and avoid oversized asses. The way to the church itself is a bit tiring, it's slippery and a lot of stairs, but it's worth every effort. The view of the city from the top is beautiful.

  • I really love the cathedral. He clearly reminded me of the temples of Venice. That is, the building itself does not look as beautiful as the Venetian Cathedral of Saint-Marc, but the bell tower resembles the best examples of Italian architecture. It is not surprising, because the cathedral was built in the 18th century by engineers from Venice. The upper part of the bell tower is crowned by the statue of St. Ophemia, a patron of Rofini. The saint's relics have been stored for centuries in the sarcophagus under the roof of the cathedral.
