Sveti Lovreč

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Sveti Lovreč lies on a hill with a wonderful view over tame fields, vineyards, olive groves and the sea in the distance. Its name goes back to the 6th century and stems from the Church of Sv. Lovro (Saint Lawrence). Surrounded by gentle and idyllic views and tended by a mild climate, this town, founded back in prehistoric times, is truly a place worth visiting. Known as the city of 9 towers, surrounded by town walls and the ancient pillar of shame at its square, Sv.Lovreč was once the center of military administration, while today it is developing as an attractive tourist destination. According to sources in this area there were once more than 35 churches, of which only a few survived, while in many fields forgotten ruins of the churches can be found as a memory of times gone by. The small town, which is still dominated by the basilica of Sv.Martin (St. Martin) with a bell tower – fortified building and a beautiful lodge, offers to visitors more than mere tourist attractions.
