Monument sights in Koper
- Sort by:
One of the most colourful streets in Koper, Kidričeva ulica starts at Carpacciov trg, where the Column of St Justina commemorates Koper's contribution - a galley - to the Battle of Lepanto in which Turkey was defeated by the European powers in 1571. Nearby is a large Roman covered basin that now serves as a fountain.
Behind the cathedral to the north is a circular Romanesque Rotunda of John the Baptist, a baptistery dating from the second half of the 12th century with a ceiling fresco.
