On Tito's square is also a Koper cathedral and Bell tower. You must stop here also. Around you will found also other sights. Beside cathedral you can drink good coffee. On the top of the tower you will have a nice view around the city.

I thought that it is worth a visit it is in Tito's square and has a beautiful interior. It is not a large cathedral. There is a lot of things to see in the square,

On a hill above the old town and a few minutes walk from the sea front with a Romanesque interior. For a cathedral it is not very large but feels bright with white walls, gilt and an ornate alter and pulpit. Heavy columns and side...More

Set in the middle of a classic old port town, the cathedral is old and relatively bare of ornamentation both inside and out. The front entrance opens into a good size square of similar white buildings. The bell tower is separate but adjacent, has a...More
