The Euphrasian Basilica is a basilica in Poreč, Croatia. The episcopal complex, including, apart the basilica itself, a sacristy, a baptistery and the bell tower of the nearby archbishop's palace, is one of the best examples of early Byzantine art in the Mediterranean region. Because of its exceptional value, it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997.
