Church of St. Mary on Škriljinah
The church of St. Mary on Škriljinah is only about 700 meters away from Beram. It was built in the 13th century in the middle of a cemetery. The most valuable samples of the Istrian art from the Middle Ages are preserved and kept in this church. Murals from late Gothic times, made by the master painter Vincent of Kastav, are spread throughout the interior of the church, which gives it a rather special look. The main part of the church is dedicated to the life of Mary and Jesus. The most famous and impressive mural is undoubtedly the so-called Dance of the Dead which depicts the kings, merchants, cardinals and even the Pope himself dancing hand in hand with death. In the 17th century the church was renovated and expanded, which resulted in damaging of some parts of the frescoes. The frescoes were painted and hidden until 1913, when they were re-discovered and reconstructed.
