The church is fairly simple, one room, one altar at the end. No side altars or chapels The center piece on the altar contains small sculptures ofJesus, Mary and the 12 disciples done mostly in gold. We couldn't figure out how to get to the cloister but would have liked to seen that.

Really nice church to visit when in Pula if you want to do some historical sightseeing. It is hard to find though and a bit hidden don't hesitate to ask for directions from a local. Everyone in Pula was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay that it is not a problem to ask for help.

This is up a hill from the main square and there is not a lot to see. I went on a Sunday and not surprisingly the Church seemed reasonably well attended so not ideal for any flash photographs. The church is not hugely ornate and the Monastery is presumably still used.

A very nice and interesting church situated in the centre of Pula. Location is very close to the town hall, temple of august etc and its worth a visit.

a calm and spiritual place in the middle of a living city, hidden in a small street right in the city centre. you have to search a little bit. you can enter inside both the churh and the monastery courtyard.

We were technically lost and so wondering around the streets in Pula. we found this church by accident as we thought it was in another location (bad map-reading skills) and it was worth the discovery. it's full of histroy and such a delightful sight

Beautiful church up the hill a bit. Its a church of historic significance so worth a look . We looked at the outside and admired the rustic exterior then found peace in the interior . Some interesting icons and art inside.

Nothing special, did not enter monastery, but interesting architecture outside. Time to catch your breath before continuing up to top of Pula.
