What can we say about a 4th century basilica? It is a must. There is so much to see. You follow the indications and you will be able to visit it all. Better if you hire a guide or stay not far from one. You'll learn more about the history of the basilica.

The Basilica is easy to find in the old town and certainly worth a visit. Dating from the early days of christianity it dates back many centuries, having been refurbished on the original site several times. the brochure given with admittance is numbered to give you alogical tour of the Basilica wothout missing anything. The Camponile is worth the climb... More

Very interesting for the whole family. Well worth the visit. You are asked to cover shoulders on your visit, but they provided us with scarves if you don't have one.

A real Unesco site. Must see for all the visitors in the beautiful Istria. Probably the nicest place in Croatia.

It is located in old town. In top season it is quite overcrowded but still really worth to visit. You can go to the bell tower where is an amazing view to all Porec.

You should not miss the Basilica if you're in Porec. It's located on a back street in the old town, so you'll find it eventually. It's been built in the Byzantine style and it combines classical elements. It's been built in the sixth century and it has some extraordinary mosaics.

Porec is very touristy and busy. This was a nice change from that with an interesting history and great views.

Basilica is in quite good condition and is partly under restauration. This early christian building is from 6th century and it is "the must to see" in this town. It has been also as home for many bishops until our days.

Unbelievable building - not many remaining of that era! Breathtaking stone masonry, ancient fragment all over, mosaic, marble, granite. Didn't want to leave!
