Euphrasian Basilica, UNESCO’s Heritage Site

The Euphrasian Basilica, the most priceless cultural asset in Pore, was included to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997. The early-Christian compound is the only entirely intact landmark from that era that has survived elsewhere in the world.
It was constructed in the sixth century, during the reign of Bishop Euphrasius, and it contains an atrium, a baptistery, a bishop’s palace, mosaics, and the ruins of ecclesiastical structures from the third to the fourth centuries. The mosaics that adorn the church’s interior and exterior are regarded as a priceless legacy of Byzantine art, and the floor mosaics and manuscripts that have survived allow us to date the building’s construction and repair.
