What to see near the port of Porec

Those arriving by ferry or hydrofoil in Poreč can start their visit immediately. Less than a kilometer from the port, in fact, there is the splendid Euphrasian Basilicaa Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997It is one of the most important works of Byzantine art that has come down to us and, in addition to the religious, historical and cultural value (the mosaics that decorate the apse are remarkable ), from its bell tower it offers a magnificent view of the city.

Therefore, do not forget your camera also because, in addition to the Poreč sky line, there is much more to see and photograph. Starting with the ancient pavement of Piazza Marafor, continuing on to the remains of the Great Temple and the Temple of Neptune (both adjacent to the square), up to the three coastal towers to protect the port: the Pentagonal Tower, the Round Tower and the North-East Tower

As far as urban planning and architecture are concerned, the historic center of Parenzo shows two particularly significant traces: the Roman one, which can be found in the organization of the territory around two perpendicular axes: the Decumanus and the Cardo Massimoand the Italian one (especially Venetian) which can be deduced from the sight of the buildings and houses in the center.

Special mention for the Hall of the Istrian Diet, seat of the regional parliament. Worth seeing are above all the paintings and stuccos that decorate the ceiling, the work of the Italian artists Angelo Venturini and Giuseppe Monteventi.

Obviously Poreč is also - above all - a seaside resort and therefore one cannot fail to mention its beaches (Parenzo beach, Brulo, Maro, Bellevue, Zelena laguna etc.) and the lively summer nightlife of bars, restaurants and clubs scattered around. for the center.
