The Church of the Holy Cross
A small church, the Church of the Holy Cross, was built on a reef in the 14th century. It is located in the Holy Cross Street near the city gates. On the lintel, the year 1592 is imprinted because the façade was restored at the time. In it you can see the laying of Jesus from the cross. According to the legend, the sarcophagus with the body of St. Euphemia was found in its immediate vicinity. This is evidenced by the inscription on the pillar, erected in 1720 on a steep rock by the sea: “D.O.M. Divae Euphemiae Rubinsium Numini tutelare ac Molari civitatis Obsequientissimae Votum Anno 1720”. The worship is performed twice a year. On May 3 the Invention of the Holy, and on July 13, when it is considered that the sarcophagus floated up to Rovinj. The Church was restored in 1965. Situated on the promenade, it now houses a gallery.
