Vodnjan – The Mummies

Mummies

intelinvest-logo50 km from Barići Villas

The largest Istrian church is the Church of Saint Blaž in Vodnjan. The church was built between 1760 and 1800. It contains 370 relics belonging to 250 saints. But the most peculiar thing is the three mummies. Neither of the three bodies had been enbalmed, nor has any rational explanation been offered as to how is it possible that they have been there for centuries, and yet they have been so well preserved that in fact they are counted among the best preserved mummies in Europe.
