Pretty church on the promenade of the beautiful city of Piran. It is set amongst other buildings, yet stands out on its own & beckons you to see within. Lovely interior & very peaceful. Well worth a look.

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!

Immaculate church with a surprisingly detailed inside. Tucked away off a small square and accessed through narrow lanes, this church is deceptively large.

This is more than a church, it's also a convent. The church has several nice altars. There's also a cloister and a couple other rooms one with some interesting artifacts and paintings. Found this much more interesting than St George up the street.
