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.

  • Nice church on top of the old town. You have stunning views from here. The architecture of the church is baroque which I personally don' t like that much. But if you do, go inside.
  • Beautiful church and gorgeous view on the sea, marina, coast. Recommended to go closer to evening, sunset light makes photos full of magic. Be aware, that you have to go up on foot by mediaeval paved slippery streets. But numerous delicious restaurants could become your pleasant place for break.
