We slipped into this church on a Sunday afternoon. It's stately, huge and with colorful stain glass windows. We talked to a docent at the front of the church who offered us options to see the little museum and/or the mummies behind the alter. The tour of the museum, we were told, takes about an hour and the mummies another... More

Extraordinary. Had a private viewing of the mummified saints and the relics. Church official spoke good English. Very interesting. Beautiful church in a very quiet town. Well worth a visit.

totally worth the visit! even if you're not particularly religious the experience is still very cool. the church itself is beautifully structured both inside and out, and the man that worked there was very friendly and polite. my jaw dropped as soon as i entered the room with the mummies. their stories are very intriguing and their bodies are really...

Loved the old Venetian style town in which St. Blaise resides. We were not sure that the church would be open, according to our guidebook, but it was and we waited just a few minutes to have a private presentation of the mummies by one of the Church Staff. One was supposed to have curative properties. Then we were led... More

This place is a walhalla for relics lovers and persons with an affection for morbid atmospheres. Worth a visit, but not a detour.

We find relics (i.e. pieces of saints) to be completely fascinating, but this place takes the cake. The church houses half a dozen bodies of saints from the 1300-1700s... that have mysteriously remained intact and have not decomposed. You can view them and listen to a short description of the saints while you observe. Enhancing the experience was the absolute... More

Apart from the relics of St. Blaise, Vodnjan's parish church also keeps 370 relics belonging to 250 different saints. In addition to one of the thorns from Jesus' crown, fragment of the Holy Virgin's veil, particle of Jesus' Cross and many others, a special attraction are the desiccated remains of saints whose bodies or body parts have been completely preserved:...
