Not a lot to see here - but worth a walk around town and a stop here for 10 minutes or so. Some interesting things to see inside the church including the frescos on the ceiling.

In a small street you will find this church. The Tartini family has their graves here. It is very calm, not too much tourists - you should climb up to the church! The ambulatory is beautiful, there are concerts in the main season here.

Inside the "Samostan Sv. Franciska" is a chair carved from a 500 year old indigenius olive tree. Try the chair with your eyes closed for a couple of minutes. One can hear the church choir's soft music from inside too. The place is simply magical!

Immaculate church with a surprisingly detailed inside. Tucked away off a small square and accessed through narrow lanes, this church is deceptively large.

This is more than a church, it's also a convent. The church has several nice altars. There's also a cloister and a couple other rooms one with some interesting artifacts and paintings. Found this much more interesting than St George up the street.

If you are in Piran you might go and see it, as it is an old and beautiful monastery, it is not active nowadays.

An old and beautiful monastery in Piran with lovely court yard. Inside the church, you may find the special saint faces on the dome, which is seldom found in the other churches. Also, you may find a hand holding the saint cross from the side...More
