Parish church of St. Vid
During your stay in Grožnjan, make sure to visit the parish church of St. Vid, Krešencija and Modest, which was initially named the church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary. The church was rebuilt in baroque style and it is where the Girardi organ from the 19th century is kept. The church interior is decorated with numerous motives, such as the martyrdom of the saints to whom the church is dedicated. There are five altars in this church, including the main one. The image of Blessed Don Francesco Bonifacio, who was executed as a witness of Christ on September 11, 1946, is located above one of the altars. In the church you can see works of folk art such as carved benches made in the Renaissance period.
