Terrific value for money. So much to see and so much history including mosaics from the 4th century. Just £4 for so much.

Reasonable protected by UNESCO. The most valuable cultural monument in Porec. Be sure to visit this building. Is located in the old town, on the right side of decumanus street. Be sure to climb the tower, will delight you with the views of the Porec old town.

Porec doesn't have much to see but if you're there, please visit this Basilica which is probably the best thing to visit in Porec.
