Church of St. Euphemia, Rovinj

4.4
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. On a clear day you can see the Alps. Put Church of St. Euphemia and other Rovinj attractions into our Rovinj trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • If you visiting medieval Rovinj, a must see. Stunning setting. Climbing up the hill takes some work, but not sherpas nor scary walkways. A classic ornate church from a bygone era.  more »
