Near Vodnjan, just 3km east of the town center, the old St. Cecilija church ruin can be found. It is accesible by car (SUV at least) just a few houndred meters from the asphalt road that goes trough the village of St. Cecilija. Although there are some excavations going on around the ruin, the church, itself has been well conservated. More about the church can be found on the link on the top.
