The Oratory Church (Rovinj)
The Oratory Church of Our Lady of Sorrows dates back to the 15th century. It has two entrances, one from the Švalbe Street and the other from the Silvana Chiurca Street. In the Middle Ages, the first city hospice for patients was located there, especially for the elderly and the poor, and one part of it was taken by the Catholic Church. In 1482, the church was built in honor of Our Lady of Mercy and St. Lawrence the Martyr. From 1707, the hospice hosted women only. The church was later updated by connecting and adaptation of the existing buildings with the hospice. A larger procedure was performed in 1733, while the altar was set in 1788. On the altar, in the cove with a glass door, there is a beautiful statue of Our Lady of Sorrows. The church was restored just before the Second World War. The Church is replacing and supplementing the Church of St. Euphemia. Worships are held there every day.
