Porec

Porec (pronounced Por-etch) is a small town in Istria in the middle of a vast region of resorts (see Porec on a map).It's not the place to get away from it all (unless you go in January) but there are a ton of activities in the Porec hotels, most of which are on the beach outside of town. Be aware that beaches are rocky, not sandy. (See Porec on a map of Istria).

What to See in Porec

The highlight of Sightseeing in Porec centres on the marvellous Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its gleaming mosaics.

The compact town centre is known for its rectangular street plan that dates back to 50 BC. Following Roman street design, Porec has two main intersecting streets: Cardo and Decumanus.

Marafor is the oldest part of the town with the remains of two Roman temples: the Temple of Mars and Neptune's Temple. Note the House of Two Saints which displays Romanesque features and the Istrian Parliament Building which was once a Franciscan church. Venetian style is also well-represented in the Leoni and Zuccato Palaces, built in Venetian style gotico fiorito.The Regional Museum is also noteworthy as it is housed in an 18th-century palace. Founded in 1884, it was the first museum in Istria.
