Just a short walk from the center of town. Up close, the place is impressive but crawling with people. Best time to shoot is at sunset. Use a wide angle lens but beware of distortion. The best view is from the sea. There is not a bad time to shoot. Use a polarizer if possible.

A lovely little church on the hill. A lovely walk through cobbled streets and great views of rovinj from the top. Don't forget to go inside as it is a lovely little church.

Learn more about this cathedral and the person for whom it is named by visiting. Be sure to walk all the way around the altar to use the engravings.

The Cathedral is lovely inside, but what makes this special is you can pay a small fee and climb up the inside of the bell tower. The steps are steep open wooden ones, not for the faint hearted. The view is spectacular, 360 degrees across the rooftops of Rovinj and the surrounding islands. Take care walking to and from the... More

In the old town, that is. Any street you decide to climb in the old town will, soon or later, deliver you to the Church Square. A statue of St. Euphemia, the protector of the town, who died under torture for her Christian faith, is on the top and her remains are inside. I hit service on Sunday morning, so... More

Absolutely worth the walk up to the cathedral - not only the cathedral, but for the stunning view as well

This cathedral although at the top of a step incline is well worth the trip. With views across the Adriatic in all directions you will never get bored of things to look at. Be sure to walk up and down a different route as lots of small pathways exist all with their own unique set of shops or day to... More

The church is lovely but the real attraction is climbing the bell tower. We laughed about how an attorney would own this church if it were in the U.S. because of the law suits resulting from the climb. It's not for the meek but it's so worth it when you arrive at the top. We were so lucky to have... More

A great walk up to the cathedral, up cobbled streets lined with shops and restaurants - great soaking up the atmosphere. Once at the cathedral, paid the entrance fee to climb up the rickety staircase - tried not to look too hard at the woodworm in the wooden staircase, and the quivering that you could feel underfoot, with the volume...

We have visited Rovinj four times in the last 5 years. Returning is like visiting family. We always climb to the top of old town to visit this very beautiful Saint Euphemia Cathedral...the church is exquisite and relaxing. The views are nearly 180 over the sea and adjacent islands. Worth the hike!
