Pazin – Beram


St. Nicholas

Pazin is the center of the one-time Pazin County and presently the administrative center of Istria County. It is best to come in the end of June, during the Days of Jules Verne. This pioneer of science fiction was inspired by Pazin and its deep cave above which stands the medieval Pazin Castle, one of the nicest and best preserved in Istria.


St. Mary at Škrilinah

On your way to Beram, the view of it will appear suddenly. You will be able to see the top of the belfry while the village covered by thick forest is hardly noticeable. Fifty years ago the terraces of the hill were still cultivated and showed a completely different aspect of this acropolis-type of settlement, whose present-day appearance has been created in pre-history and the Middle Ages.

St. Martin

The Parish Church of St. Martin in Beram keeps less known frescoes. The one-time medieval church has been preserved as the sanctuary of the present-day one. In the sanctuary of the Gothic building is the representation of St. Martin, a painting by the North Italian artist influenced by the work of Vitale da Bologna.
