Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary
In the center of Umag there is a parish church dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.

The bell tower is 33 meters high, built in the Venetian style, and adorned with a statue of the Venetian lion. The church interior is clearly made in the Baroque style giving it a special dose of grandeur. Also, next to the main altar are statues of patron saints and the then Pićan bishop and the co-patron Saint of the Umag parish. The exterior walls feature the remains of the back part of the church, which had been built on the same site in the 4th century.
