St. Sebastian’s Church is a small building, but with very long biography. It is above all important for the history of Rijeka’s health culture as it is dedicated to the protector against the plague. In the middle ages, this disease decimated the whole of Europe, and the Rijeka area was not an exception. As a pledge after the disappearance of the plague, on the area of the current building, a smaller one was built at the end of 13th century. The new, baroque church appeared on its site in the 16th century. This can be seen by the inscription situated above the entrance to the building, with the year marked as 1562. In accordance with its size, the church is not richly furnished. However, it is interesting not only as testimony to the horrible disease which once devastated the Rijeka area. In it valuable objects were stored from numerous small churches in the surrounding areas of Rijeka that appeared during the 18th century.
