The Church of St. Euphemia, often known as the Basilica of St. Euphemia, although it is not formally a basilica minor, is a Baroque church located in the heart of the historic part of Rovinj, Croatia, dominating the town.This three-nave church was built in 1736 over the remains of older, early Christian structures. The dedication was originally to Saint George, later to Saints George and Euphemia; the present building is dedicated to Euphemia only. Its façade dates from 1883.The relics of Saint Euphemia are preserved in a Roman sarcophagus from the sixth century (but adapted in the 15th century). The church contains several treasures and works of art: Gothic statues from the 15th century, paintings from the 16th and the 17th centuries: Last Supper and Christ in the Gethsemane.The bell tower resembles the tower of St Mark's Basilica in Venice. It was built during 1654–1680, to the plans by Antonio Manopola. On top of this 60 m-high tower stands the statue of Saint Euphemia, serving as a wind vane.

  • 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
