Church of St. Roch - Svetvinčenat

The church of St. Roch was built in the 17th century, commissioned by the brotherhood of St. Roch. It is situated in the northwestern part of the town and it is a typical example of medieval Istrian architecture. A loggia was later added on the façade, but it was subsequently removed. The altar painting, painted by an unknown Venetian artist in the 18th century, has been restored and transferred to the parish church on the sidewall on top of the choir benches. The Holy Trinity and the saints are painted on it.
