Late gothic frescoes, Pazin

Originally built in 1266, it was rebuilt in 15th and 18th centuries. St. Nicholas Parish Church presbytery displays a unique gothic groin vault with a series of late-gothic frescoes painted around 1460. 

Those frescoes belong to the highlight of late Gothic Art in Istria. The same way of vault shaping has been used later, in some other Istrian churches, including the one by the Franciscan monastery. Gaetano Callido made the church organ in 1780. In 1705, a 45 m high bell-tower was built next to the church.
