Rijeka

The Church of St Jerome and Dominican Monastery

  Trg Riječke rezolucije 1      (+385-51) 32 53 20     more than a year ago
A fine baroque church on the grand Municipium square. It was originally part of an Augustinian monastery complex built by one of Rijeka’s noble families the Counts of Devin, and which later passed over to relations in the House of Walsee – members of both dynasties are buried here. Founded in 1315 and completed in 1396, St Jerome’s was originally gothic in style but suffered the same fate as many others in the earthquake of 1750, and was rebuilt in the baroque style which you see today. Next to St Jerome’s is the Chapel of the Holy Trinity, which is a fine example of Alpine gothic architecture. The monastery now houses a Dominican order of monks. Mass: 08:00, 18:30, Sun 08:00, 09:00, 11:30, 18:30.
