The Basilica was peaceful and there was no rush to climb the stairs up to the bell tower (views were spectacular from all four aspects great photograph opportunity) after we had waited for the school party to descend. If you purcahse the guidebook in english gives you lots of information as you go around. Well worth the money and not... More

An interesting religious complex dating back centuries. The splendour of the byzantine mosaics was amazing. This remains a living church, so avoid sundays unless you want to take part in worship. A well presented series of exhibits made this a valuable experience.

The basilica is right in the middle of Porec and at 40 Kuna (£4) entry fee it's a bargain. The mosaics are well preserved and the architecture interesting. For me the view from the top of the bell tower is the highlight (no pun intended) with fine views over the town. There could have been a little more information provided... More

Well organised place to visit. The best is at the end :) In the beginning there are some ruins to see. The basilica is quite impressive with very high ceiling.

A stunning Basiilica with stunning views over the town and sea. Take care getting up and down the hill and the streets are very slippy, but it is well worth the walk.

We visited Porec many years ago but missed the Basilica, museum and bell Tower. Back to Croatia we took time off to finally go here and it is well worth the visit. Even if you aren't very interested of history you can enjoy the architecture and the views from the bell tower.

A must visit/see in Poreč! The location is within the main shopping and eating area of the old city and its easy to find - just head towards the old bell tower. Once you're there, it costs 40KN per ticket (or $8AUD) which is quite reasonable. Definitely walk up the stairs to the top of th bell tower for a... More

Beautiful mosaics. This is a functioning church so remember to respect worshiping times and dress codes.
