Directions to Episcopal Complex of the Euphrasia Basilica
Located in the historic city of Porec, Istria, is the outstanding Euphrasian Basilica Complex. This architectural masterpiece was built by Bishop Euphrasia in the 6th century.
In 1997, UNESCO acknowledged the Basilica as one of the seven world heritage sites in Croatia. Byzantine art, stunning colorful mosaics, the bishop's palace, baptistery, campanile and courtyard combine together creating a magnificent complex. The collection of early Christian and Byzantine architecture is outstanding. The baptistery where adults would receive baptism by immersion into the holy water was built in the 5th century. Gem-studded mosaics, elaborate stucco work, and the church bell tower are a few of the highlights.
The Basilica is open daily from 7.30-20 and entrance is free of charge. Situated in the center of Porec, the Episcopal Complex of the Euphrasia Basilica is a historical monument you must see!
