POREČ - A CITY WITH A THOUSAND-YEAR-OLD HISTORY

Entering the historic heart of Poreč, you set foot on a stage that is over 2000 years old. The 400m long and 200m wide peninsula was divided by the ancient surveyors into insulas, parcels of land allocated for housing, public institutions, temples, and interwoven into a regular street network. Most of this grid plan has been preserved as well as the ancient names of its longest parallel and perpendicular streets Decumanus and Cardo Maximus. You can visit : Euphrasius Basilica, the Romanesque House, the Istrian Assembly Hall, the Great Temple of Neptune...

EUPHRASIAN BASILICA

Poreč's most valuable cultural asset, the Euphrasian Basilica, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. This early Christian enclosure is the world's only complete preserved monument from this period. Built at the time of Bishop Euphrasius in the 6th century, it includes an atrium, a baptistery, an episcopal palace, mosaics and the remains of sacred buildings dating from the 3rd to 4th centuries. The mosaics decorating the interior and façade of the church are considered a precious legacy of Byzantine art, and thanks to the mosaics on the floor and the preserved writings, the periods of its construction and renovation can be read.
