This Baroque cathedral is on the top of a hill and does involve a fairly long walk. The walk, however, is worth it, not only for the ornate interiors but also for the views from the top. The remains of St.Euphemia, the patron saint of the town, are entombed at this place. Entry is free. Do wear proper footwear for... More

On 12 Nov, we looked at Rovinj while standing at the old port and discovered St Euphemia Cathedral. Then, again, we chanced upon the Cathedral sign somewhere near Balbi Arch and decided to climb up the hill to visit the church and have a good view of Rovinj.

This cathedral is the resting place of St. Euphemia who was martyred and whose casket washed up on shore over 800 years ago. Her remains are now encased in the cathedral.

There are several different altars which are lavishly furnished, and at the back of the Cathedral, is the actual tomb of St Euphemia. To the left of the altar, is the bell tower, which... More

The GF and I visited the church and were the first ones in at 10.30am. It isn't the most ornate church in the world but the three altars are quite amazing. With no admission fee, the cathedral is worth a visit and is a must do in Rovinj

The cathedral was built with the demolishing of 3 small churches on the highest part of the hill containing the old town of Rovinj. The tower is the tallest in Istria.

Nice views from the top of the hill. Nothing special but a nice walk up to it. Such a small place that it is a must do.
