The Euphrasian basilica dating from the 6th century, is the most significant edifice making Poreč recognizable in the world. Because of its exceptional value, it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997. Poreč is a beautiful city and each stone is part of a rich culture, art, history and religion. In a remarkable way, the Euphrasian basilica comprises all these elements. Its architecture and mosaics are evidence of the distant past and the power of belief in God that encouraged martyrs in their witnessing to the faith. Beautiful landscape, clean sea, rugged coastline and unspoiled nature are a real invitation to many people to make a short or long stay.
