Piran is a beautiful town on the Slovenian coast, which lies at the end of the Piran Peninsula. In the summer, it attracts many local and foreign tourists as it has a beautiful medieval design with tightly packed houses and narrow streets.
The Brotherhood Square was once called the Rok trg Square. At the Square you can see the Marciana Gates, the Saint Roch's Church, Palace Apollonio Palace and other interesting buildings. The square is surrounded by Marx Street, Tomsic Street, Gortan Street, Zupancic Street and others. Piran used to be surrounded by the city walls, parts of which are still preserved today. It is made up of three different walls that were created due to the expansion of the city. Seven city gates, which were once the entrances to the city, have been preserved. The Marciana Gate was built in 1534. It leads to Svoboda Street. The gate is built in Renaissance style and is part of the third wall. Saint Roch's Church was built in the early 17th century. The Baroque church is one of the churches in the squares. The floor plan of the church is an elongated rectangular one-nave space. You can see the preserved stucco on the ceiling. The wooden statues were made by Venetian carvers. The interior of the Saint Roch's Church was restored in 2004 and the facade and roof of the church in 2002. The Apollonio Palace was created by combining two buildings and extension on the then empty space towards the sea.
It was successfully renovated in 1693, which is reported by a baroque stone plaque with a coat of arms and an inscription above the front door. Neo-classicist paintings from the first third of the 19th century were discovered during research into the interior of the palace.
