The Church of the Mother of God na Placu (on the Square), Gračišće

A Late-Gothic church of the Mother of God, dominating the Square, was built to the right side of the Town Gate by Master Dento in 1425 to the order of the local villager-nobleman Petar Beračić. This fact witnesses that in the Middle Ages there was a privileged class, which had money to build churches, but also profane building such as the Salomon Place. The internal eastern wall of the church is covered over its whole length by a large wall painting depicting the Adoration of the Magi, originating from the same period. Many would ask what the nails driven between the blocks of the external wall of this beautiful church mean. The legend says that over the times, on the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, childless women would drive in the nails believing that they would conceive by Devine Mercy.

The parish church of Sv.Vid, Modesto and Kresencija, Gračišće

Erected in the 17th century at the place of a much older church. It has seven small, baroque altars. The statue of Sv.Vid with a model in his hand which in perspective shows the town during the 15th century. Near the church, the bell-tower, 30 meters high, dates back to the 13th century.
