Oprtalj – Čirkoti – Rakotule


St. Roch

On the opposite entrance to the village is St. Roch’s Church. It was subsequently extended and had a portico added onto it. The oldest part of the church keeps scenes with saints painted by Anthony from Padova. The best preserved is the figure of St. Leonard, the saint in chains, that best shows Anthony’s modeling of the face, anatomic details of meticulous drawing and the thick, opaque layers of color.
