Church of the Birth of Blessed Saint Mary

This beautiful three-nave church in the town of Labin, was built in 1336 on the foundations of a smaller church dating from the 11 century. The church has been renovated several times over the years and today a Venetian lion with a sphere in his mouth decorates the front façade, as does a 17th century baroque statue of senator Antonio Bollani, who fought against the Turks.
