Church of Our Lady of Good Health
In Rovinj there are a few churches of historical significance that attract tourist. In the Švalbe Street, the Church of Our Lady of Good Health, built in 1779, is located. It contains several valuable canvas paintings. The most famous is the altarpiece, a copy of the painting from the famous Church of the Lady of Health in Venice. This little church is famous for being visited twice a year: on November 21st when the feast of Our Lady of Health takes place, as well as on Monday after the first Sunday following the Ascension. Since 1818, a large procession also takes place in honor of Our Lady of Health as a means of thanking God for saving the city of Rovinj from the plague. This votive procession is held even today. The first day of the procession takes place around St. Euphemia, while the next is a Mass in the Church of Our Lady of Good Health.
