Another pleasant church in Piran. There was a service going on so we could only look in. Will check it out next time in Piran.

Not a lot to see here - but worth a walk around town and a stop here for 10 minutes or so. Some interesting things to see inside the church including the frescos on the ceiling.

In a small street you will find this church. The Tartini family has their graves here. It is very calm, not too much tourists - you should climb up to the church! The ambulatory is beautiful, there are concerts in the main season here.

Inside the "Samostan Sv. Franciska" is a chair carved from a 500 year old indigenius olive tree. Try the chair with your eyes closed for a couple of minutes. One can hear the church choir's soft music from inside too. The place is simply magical!
