St. George's Church (Cathedral) in Piran is proudly raising above the city Piran and gives it the special meaning. The St. George was protector of the town. The cathedral was built in the 12th century and in the 14th century was constructed in the present largeness. In the year 1637 got the today's image by the baroque renovation. In the year 1608 was added the belfry and the baptistery in the year 1650. The hill on which is standing the church was also fortified in these years. In the year 1641 they built the supporting walls and in the sea part they strengthen the hill with the rocky arches. They began with their building in the year 1663 and finished it in the year 1804. In the year 1998 they renovated them, because they were destroyed from erosion. The church of St. George got in the year 1737 seven marble altars. Worth to see are two plastic arts of Saint George. Among important pieces of the church equipment are the cathedral organs. They were made by Petar Nakić, Franciscan monk from Dalmatia. Belfry is the shorten copy of the belfry of Saint Mark in Venice. In summer months you can go up and enjoy in wonderful views far away. The baptistery is made in the shape of octagon and in it you can see the painting works from different periods and the church furniture from the 17th century.
