This hilltop church, built in the Baroque style between 1725 and 1736, is dedicated to Rovinj’s co-patron saint, Euphemia (the other patron saint being St George). Local legend has it that a marble sarcophagus containing Euphemia’s body was miraculously washed up from the sea in Rovinj in a.d. 800, having disappeared from Constantinople, where she had been honored as a saint following her martyrdom in a.d. 304. The sarcophagus is now on display inside the church, which was built specially to house it. The 61m (200 ft.) bell tower, a copy of St Mark’s in Venice, is one of the tallest campaniles in Istria—you can climb to the top for amazing views over the sea and hinterland.
