One of many churches in Pula

Pula is not that big city, so it's interesting to see that there seems to be a church in "every" corner. This Cathedral is located near seaside and Old Town. Free entrance and... read more

This interior needs to be lit up. bring back some light and vision. Have panels that tell a story of its history. A joyless place whether one is a believer or not.

A very pretty cathedral or more like a large church compared with other cathedrals. It has lots of information inside to tell you about its history. Well worth a visit as it was free. We also donated 3 kn each to light candles which was nice.

This was very quite unlike most cathedrals not at all ornate, but with the most lovely feel of a real place of worship.

This church took some serious hits in WWII. You can tell by the color of the pillars and the capitals on each. It looks like only 4 of the 14 or so pillars are original. Would have loved to see this church in it's hey day. Looks a bit like a big 'ol pole barn now.

wherever we go we end up in cathedrals or churches . We are not religious however they are a cool peaceful sanctuary in 38 degree heat. No where near as decorated as many we have seen , however the peace was a welcome relief

This Hodge-podge of architectural details is said to house the remains of a 13th Century Hungarian King, but don't raise your hopes too much: the facade is the only item of partial interest. Even its tower is somewhat short and looking more like an elephant than an elegant Belvedere. The inside is empty of any decoration and of no interest... More

In the Croatian town of Pula, I've been three times. Unlike previous visits, which were a combination of official and private, now I'm trying to make this city a little "unfolded", not as a journalist or scientist, but with the ambition to discover what escapes from the views of ordinary tourists or routinely correspondent. Coincidentally, it is the recommendation of... More

Along with the Euphrasian Basilica it is one of the two official seats of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Poreč and Pula. The church is located on the south side of the Pula bay at the foot of the hill with the 17th century Venetian fort. The site of the present-day church has been used for religious worship since ancient... More

A nice cathedral, well preserved and taken care of. Great location, and close to many cafes and the main street.
