“Beautiful!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Everything was amazing. The walk up the bell tower and through the church were worth the euro per person each. Even if you don't want to pay, the view is still worth walking up.

“Magnificent view”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

The church is worth the walk uphill. For only one euro you can go up the bell tower. The view from up there is amazing. You can see Tartini Square, the whole peninsula of Piran as well as Italy and Croatia on a day with clear skies.

“Great View, Amazing Ancient Crucifix”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This church is in a stunning location, and the walk up hill to it is worth it for the wonderful views of the city and the Adriatic. There is a large, ancient wooden crucifix inside that is very unusual and beautiful. I though it was a modern work, and was surprised that it was actually hundreds of years old. Well worth the modest admission price to the small museum and the sanctuary.

“Gorgeous St. George”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

If you visit Portoroz, you must visit this Church..it is gorgeous old church with a spectacular view. If you are not into walking...you may want to take a taxi...the church sits on top of the hill with a beautiful scenery.
