Church of St. Euphemia in Rovinj

The church of St. Euphemia is ranked among the most beautiful representations of the Baroque period in Istria and dominates the small coastal town of Rovinj. St. Euphemia is the town’s patron saint and her remains are housed in a marble sarcophagus in the church.
The church of St. Eufeija is the most striking building which dominates the whole old town core. It was built at the beginning of the 18th century and in the middle of the last century and the new front was constructed in the Baroque-Venetian style. The bell tower of St. Eufemija is 60 m high and decorated with a copper statue of the saint, which is pushed around by the power of the winds.
