With its fortified double walls and three Town Gates
from the early Middle Ages, Rovinj (Ruvignio - 7th c.) presents an example of urban
architecture of the Mediterranean type. The church of St. Euphemia (1736), with the statue
of the patron saint of Rovinj standing on its 60 m high bell tower, dominates the town.
For boaters it is interesting that the statue turns depending on the wind direction. The
church interior treasure a valuable collection of art works from the 17th c.
