Not just a simple Basilica but the witness of glory roman history by plenty of mosaics. You can see the first oratory symbolic significance. However, those mosaics are preserved like an open-air museum, which means they are not well covered and people may touch them. Also the underground and outside is actually ruins. Hopefully it will not bore you. The... More

I was in Poreč and specifically wanted to see the Basilica. It was interesting, but was finished in 30 minutes and found the 40kn ticket a little expensive, especially coming into Winter. It was interesting, but I wouldn't bother with a special visit unless you have a specific interest in this part of history.

By far, Croatia has really good roads, so it was a bit surprising as we drove on some bad stretches from Rovinj over to Poreç to see the Eufrazijeva Bazilika, but what really matters is the following. While these may be the best preserved Roman mosaics outside and under the Basilica's current floor, their current state is truly sad, especially... More

If you are interested in church architecture and historical buildings then you must visit the basilica. Most of the building dates from he 4th and 5th centuries - there is an interesting museum with some later art and carvings. The basilica is a beautiful building with wonderful mosaics - floor and wall, and traces of frescoes. Well organised one way... More

My husband and I went to Porec just to see this. It was worth the hour's drive from Rovinj. The historical value of this place is amazing and we spent about 2 hours there. Climb the bell tower if you can. It's part of the entrance fee.

Climbed up the bell tower and had a 360 degree view of Porec old town which was simply beautiful! Do step outside to the mosaic floor viewing platform and if you walj far out... More

Must visit a real old church. But can't find the reason for skull and crossbones at the small alter on the floor?
