We enjoyed our visit here as it gave us an insight into the very early church in Istria. We also witnessed the great faith of the Croatian people.

Splendid example of mosaics in this well preserved church. Amazing to see and you can get up close and actually touch them. The outdoor mosaics are the most impressive.

If you are in Porec, do not miss this place. For only 40kn you can visit the basilica and museum, beautiful historical places.

The Basilica complex is a World Heritage site, dating from the sixth century. It is one of the glories of Poreč, indeed one of the glories of Croatia. Do not miss it. Even if you think you have little interest in old churches, ruins, saints and art, or any of these, I am sure that you will find something here... More

Less than £4 to enter and the bell tower has the most amazing views with not too difficult a climb. Lots of history to see and read about.

Very interesting, well worth a visit. It is not the most spectacular Basilica in Europe, but the history of the place is great and should not be missed if in Porec - visit with a guide preferably.

Well worth a visit for its history and mosaics. Everything is in an amazing state of preservation. Porec is a delightful town. Good food market and lovely restaurants.

This is a beautiful and fascinating complex, particularly if you are interested in art, architecture and/or history as we are. It has a long and colorful past, well preserved ruins, a gorgeous old church and some interesting things in the museum. We must have spent 3 hours here. In addition, there are numerous places for great photo ops.
