Visit Euphrasius Basilica to see one of the best-preserved early Christian cathedral complexes in the world. The 6th century bishop Euphrasius ordered the construction of the church, which is now a World Heritage Site. Walk along the two rows of marble columns with richly sculpted Byzantine and Romanesque capitals. Admire the only surviving depiction of the Mother of God in an early-Christian western basilica. Look for the mosaic of Mary and child sitting on the heavenly throne in the vault over the apse. Don't miss the marble ciborium, modeled on the one in St. Mark's in Venice. Climb up to the steeple and take in views of Porec and its surroundings. For Euphrasius Basilica and beyond, use our Porec trip planner to get the most from your Porec vacation.
Euphrasius Basilica Reviews
Если вы в Порече или где-то около, эту базилику надо посетить обязательно. Древняя церковь с сохранившимися мозаиками, очень красиво. Небольшой музей, где выставлены древние распятия и алтари. more »If you are in Porec or somewhere near, this basilica should be visited necessarily. The ancient church with preserved mosaics is very beautiful. A small museum with ancient crucifixes and altars on display.

When buying tickets consider buying the small paper guide at 20KN in French that allows you to better understand what you see.
What a great place. Unique streets plenty of good priced food stops. Good weather and lovely places. Worth a visit to the world heritage site.
I'm glad we took the opportunity to visit here x tickets about 10 pound each but it is an amazing world heritage site. It was very easy to get around with very clear signage and info leading you from one area to the next. The last stop has you emerging into the most beautiful church, certainly got a wow from me xx
