Really beautiful and by the looks it well maintained. A popular landmark in the beautiful town of Poreč. Expect a lot of tourists as this is probably the most visited location there is in town.

The 40 Kuna entrance fee is nothing if you are interested in seeing this Unesco world Heritage site. Some fantastic mosaic and a church very much in use - we couldn't really see the gold mosaics due to high mass being performed. Still highly worth a visit.

I can thoroughly recommend this as an excursion. There is a charge for entrance but it is more nominal than a deal breaker. The staff are friendly and you are left to wander around the building at leisure following a predesignated route. There is a lot of information on boards and it is interesting if you take the time to... More

Well worth a visit if in Porec. View from the top of the bell tower is beautiful. Steps are steep up to it but it is well worth it. The basilica is interesting and though there is not a lot of information in English around you can get a feel for the history. There is a guidebook available in the... More

You shouldn't visit Porec without going here. Even if you're short of time, it is possible to get a good impression.

The 6th C AD basilica, with its lovely golden Byzantine apse mosaics of that age, is simply stunning, and recalls the more-or-less contemporary work at Ravenna. Anyone with more than a passing interest in art or history should visit. It's also worth noting that the ancillary buildings of the 6th C complex are also well preserved (i.e. the bishop's palace...

We visit this basilica with three small childrens. Staff was very friendly for them. You received very detailed plan what you can see in whole object and you have plenty of time to see what you want. Very nice monument.

Just a fantastic set of buildings from 1500 years ago. The cathedral Is wonderful, nice proportions, simple forms, beautiful mosaics with clear byzantine influence. Even some mosaics from the early 300's in the pre-euphrasian cathedral. Some more commentaries for the visit (a guided tour?) would greatly help understand the history around this building.
