The uphill walk to The Church of St. George is well worth it in order to get a beautiful view of Piran. We were not allowed to go into the church, but got to view it from the doorway. Just be careful when the Bora...More

You enter the church through the little museum at the side, and it is well worth paying. The marvellous baroque interior has been beautifully restored, including a terrific St George & Dragon. And there is a very touching and unusual 14C crucifix.

The real star attraction of this church is its bell tower and the associated climb to the viewing platform. The climb is well worth it and offers exceptional views over Piran.

The view from the church, both day and night were good. However,like a lot of churches in Piran you cannot enter it so you will take it in through bars. Not much else to do here.

We only visited the bell tower in front of the church on our trip to Piran, but for 2 euros a person, it was worth it for the view alone. Climbing the steps to the top was fun in itself, but the views at the...More

Interesting mix of newly renovated and old in the tower. Beautiful crafted wood stairs. View at the top is beautiful. Interesting walk up the stairs. Staff selling tickets very friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit.

The church itself is nice, has some very beautiful paintings and deserves a visit. The highlight though is the tower which i suggest you not to miss; a wooden scary stair will lead you to the top of the tower from which you will be...More
