I was looking forward to visiting this glorious site once more. As we are interested in old art,churches, ruins and history we just couldn't pass the opportunity to enjoy it. For a fee of 40 Kuna,one can enjoy the well preserved masterpiece mosaics, sweet calmness of basilica and feel the faith if lucky enough to catch the sunday mass. Also,... More

Beautiful mosaics, and a peaceful feel to the basilica. Go on a Sunday or a feast day as this shows that the church is not just a museum.

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.
