Great cultural break from the hustle and bustle of the streets outside. Some impressive (and ancient - over 1000 years old) mosaics and religious artefacts. If you have any interest in history then this is well worth a visit.

But badly maintained, for a UNESCO site. I mean, how can they display ancient columns with tags made by tourists. Of course it's the uncultured tourists' fault, but the museum should take better care of it.

Climb the bell tower for spectacular views. If you go on Sunday its free but the mosaics and bell tower are not open.

The basilika is for sure one of the highlights during a visit or holiday in Istria – if you come at the right moment. Try to avoid the crowds. So come early or very late. Or do the best: Go for a classical concert (informations...More

Only visited the church, where a rosary service was being held, so sat at the back. Very atmospheric, what with the building being used for its true purpose! The area around the altar has some very impressive mosaics on the walls and ceiling
