The Church of St. James
The Church of St. James was built around 1420 as a colony of the refugee Benedictines from the monastery of St. Peter in Rožac. Around this Opatija monastery, a resort had developed and was named after him. Unfortunately, very little remains of the original layout of the monastery. The inscription on the portal states that the abbot Simon built the church in 1506. It was renovated in the 18th century and expanded in the early 20th century. The church was used by all religious orders, from the Benedictines to the Jesuits. In the beginning, trials were held in it, as well as fairs with the purpose of trading and dancing. In the 19th century the church housed the first school in Opatija. Regarding art, the church contains a replica of the bronze Meštrović statue “Pieta”. Today, the church is intended for Masses, prayers and maintenance of chamber concertos.
