Overview
More
This parish church was a cathedral until 1828. when the diocese of Rab was repealed. Recent discoveries of the parts of the architectonic decoration and a nearby baptistery indicate its early Christian origin from the 4th and the 5th centuries. The early Christian singularities, polygonal outer rim of the apse and a few capitals in the colonnade, were preserved in the three-naval basilica.
