Worth a visit

Well preserved Unesco site in Porec. Visit takes around an hour: you'll have the opportunity to climb the bell tower, see many mosaics and breathtaking frescos in the basilica. Entry costs 50Kn.

Nice and old church, probably the ticket it's too expensive for what's offered. There wasn't an audioguide.

A spectacular church
Oct 2019
St. Euphrasius is a really old church with parts even from the 6th century. All parts of the place are ready for visitors, and It is definitely worth to stay here some time.
The basilika sports special decorations worth admiring, and the old buildings are

Well preserved, peaceful, pretty
Dec 2019 • Family
Despite being so ancient, this place is intact -well preserved and well maintained. It’s impressive to see something like this, so golden and pretty, like it was built yesterday.
I don’t know if it was because we visited it in winter, when apparently, no one does (we were the only ones there), but the entrance was free and the place was so quite and nice that it was perfect to visit.
Recommended!

Impressive building
Dec 2019 • Family
It is not an accident that tis basilica is in the world heritage list. It is absolutely remarkablewithbits 6th century mosaics. I was surprised to know that many common names come from croatian woman's martirs: Sussana, Cecilia, Valeria, Agatha, etc.
The mosaics from the 6th century in the main althar are remarkable!

Simply Amazing
Jul 2019
This is simply a beautiful and amazing place to visit.
The entrance is just one one of the narrow stone streets and even the entrance front is beautiful. The entrance fee is modest and worth every penny. The route through the complex is signposted with explanations in English but a guide or guidebook are worthwhile.
The Basilica and the whole complex are excellent.
Like the whole town, this is a must-see place to visit.
