This is not a major tourist attraction and you have to search for it. It's a very pretty little building and all that remains of a once large religious building. Unfortunately you cannot go inside and can only view it through a fence. Well worth...More

Quite an interesting looking chapel, but we couldn't get in. Not sure if this a permanent closure, or just due to archaeological survey going on right next door (probably the latter).

This is a lovely chapel but unfortunately you couldn't go on the grounds due to it being fenced off. Would be great if they opened it and you could walk around.

We visited the sites of pula following a free map, we were able to take outside pictures but unable to go in. There are 2 50kn shops just up the road from here though.

I suppose any chapel from the 6th century can't just be average but it is very simple and no chance to go inside. There's a plaque nearby showing the basilica with this chapel clearly visible as one of 2 chapels on one end of that...More
