Create an itinerary including Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower
See one of Slovenia's oldest bells and take in excellent views of the bay at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower, whose simple exterior with Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance elements belies a luxurious Baroque interior. A large oval window above the main portal dominates the facade plated with white marble. Built in the 12th century, the church and the tower were restored on several occasions. The four-story tower holds a bell from 1333; for a small fee you can climb to the upper terrace and enjoy panoramic views of the bay. Admire the 18th-century Venetian-style frescoes adorning the interior walls of the church, and behind the altar don't miss the 14th-century chiseled sarcophagus of St. Nazarius, featuring the image of the bishop on the lid.

  • This is a beautiful cathedral but the highlight was the bell tower. The views are wonderful. To enter the church was free but it cost 5 Euros to climb the tower.

  • The bell tour was closed but the Cathedral was open and it is very grand and worth while to enter. Huge organ takes up a whole wall. Free to enter.
