There is a Baptistry with old fragments of decoration, the Bishop's Palace which houses artwork, an outdoor excavated site of the 4th century basilica, and the 6th century basilica with its gold mosaics.

It is a UNESCO protected site and fore a good reason. Great arhitecture and mosaic art. If you are in Istria its a must see. The church itself is a peacefull place just to sit, relax and enjoy and there is no fee for entering the church.

Euphrasius Basilica Historic and simple, but worth the visit which is in the center of Porec. Nice to visit

The Basilica is well worth a visit, particularly if ancient Roman antiquities are your thing. The well preserved mosaics are wonderful

It's a must...you really feel the past here. The mosaics are still well conserved. This is one of the most old churches in the world.

This church is characterized by an extremely well-preserved mosaics. You can see it inside the church or outside the antique floor mosaics. Therefore, Porec and called Mosaic city.

Either just to have a look at the basilica, on in the summertime also attend to some concerts. Some really great acoustic concerts I have been able to enjoy there.

Did not know the historical importance of this sight until we toured it. On a back street. Beautiful building and interesting stories. Climbed the bell tour for great views of the city.
