The city of Poreč is situated on the western coast of Istria. This area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. After conquering the penisula two thousand years ago, Romans established on this location their colony called Parentium. The ancient Forum was situated on the westernmost point of the peninsula, and next to it was the Capitolium with temples. In the 3rd century the settlement had an organized Christian community with an early Christian complex of sacral buildings. The floor mosaic from its oratory, originally part of a large Roman house, is still preserved north of the Euphrasian Basilica. The present basilica, dedicated to Mary, was built in the 6th century during the period of Bishop Euphrasius. The center of apse is decorated with mosaics with Mary and Child sitting on the Heavenly throne. She is flanked by angels, Bishop Euphrasius and St. Maurus, the first bishop of Poreč. Because of its exceptional value, it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997.
