Porec Guide

The Croatian town of Porec is located on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsular. With a history that dates back almost 2,000 years, Porec's heart is its harbour which is protected from the sea by the small island of Saint Nicholas. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 the town's main attraction, the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica of the Assumption of Mary, is known for its gold mosaics and is worth a visit. The church is actually a collection of buildings which include the baptistery and the Bishop's Palace. Also in the town are some preserved Romanesque houses and some amazing Venetian Gothic palaces. Originally a Gothic Franciscan church built in the 13th century, the 'Dieta Istriana' hall was remodelled in the Baroque style in the 18th century.

The town is often voted Croatia's top resort by the Croatian National Tourist Office which has helped make it a popular holiday destination. The principle tourist areas are the town's two bays to the south of the town; Zelena and Plava Laguna. Each have their own hotels, camping facilities, marina and shops.

From the town's harbour, ferries depart to Venice in Italy.
