We are not a religious couple but could appreciate the history and beauty of the basilica. Porec old town is full of charm and well worth exploring with charming old cobbled streets.

Euphrasius Basilica is probably the main place to see in Porec. Its set right in the middle of the town,with a golden gate entry. Like the Tardis,its bigger on the inside! Not expensive to look around,with much history,it needs 1-2 hours depending on your depth of study.

Visited on a rainy day... The mosaics are as advertised and the site as a whole is a good way to spend two hours. One can witness the roman construction and afterwards. There are signs in English. The views from the bell tower were great even on a rainy day.

The episcopal complex, originally dated in the 4th century is now a part of UNESCO world heritage. The visit gives you a very detailed view into the Byzantine sacral architecture of Istrian region. The place is very well preserved and recontructed. Especially mesmerising are the mosaics and the fantastic view from the bell tower.

it gives a strong overview of the history. It was a pleasure to have a inside visit and to be a part of that atraction. It's under protection of UNESCO, it's very good presented, so as far from me, it was a bingo to discover this place.

A beautiful view from it's bell tower, mistic crypt and magic mosaics in the church are worth spending time and money.

The good: Interesting basilica, heritage site, important location for Croatian culture. Interesting tile art. The bad: little information in international languages, the location is difficult to find and no way to get there with a car. Rather expensive to visit actually.

Tiles from as early as the 4th or 6th Century to be seen. Just fascinating, every pillar had a different design. I wish that these walls could talk!

If you're in Porec, do visit. it's a lovely little basilica, a nice change from the tourist atmosphere of Istria. But if you've been to Ravenna before, do realise this is Istria, not Emilia-Romagna or you'll be sorely disappointed.
