- The Church of St. Roch
The Church of St. Roch
At the end of the Vodnjan Park, there is a small church dedicated to St. Roch, built in 1530. St. Roch was the patron against the plague and considering the fact that the plague never came to Vodnjan, the locals dedicated the church to him. Throughout history, the church was devoid of its natural beauty and it is known that at one point a poor man inhabited the church. In its interior, you can have a look at the outdated and somewhat damaged icons of saints and their idols.
