Church of St. Euphemia, Rovinj

4.6
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.

  • It's a religious church that lies to people for mind control and money taking that's why 1 stat. But overall its a nice looking church you can see from all parts of town because of course they made it on top of the hill. It has some beautiful sights from its terrace. Its worth climbing up to it and enjoying the sight of sea. They even found an older church that was built long time ago and dirt covered it. It has some tunnels under it. I found this fake bullets on the ground, they were filming some action scenes here with Selma Hayek and Samuel L Jackson.
  • Nice building. Great view. Haven't been insider, a wedding was being performed
