Poreĉ–Istria Part II

Further up the coast is a small Roman town with a large Euprasian Basicila. The old part of Poreĉ is still structured as the original Roman plans, and a few Roman ruins are dotted around. I took very few photos, mainly because Nana bought me the BIGGEST gelati ever, and so I was a little preoccupied. There were lots of straight, flagged streets and colourfully-plastered buildings with souvenir shops galore.

The Basicila was gorgeous, and I guess it’s still a working church. It’s on UNESCO’s World Heritage list, and has been rebuilt and repaired in various centuries due to earthquake and fire damage.
