The Church of the Most Holy Theotokos was built in 1757 in the Baroque style on the site of an older 15th century church. It is a symbol of the city of Umag.
The facade of the building looks a little strange. The lower part of the facade of the church is finished very nicely and carefully, while the upper, apparently, remained unfinished. In 1930, the city committee tried to complete the decoration of the upper part of the facade, but no consensus was reached on this issue, and later the drawings of the church building were lost. But it was decided to demolish the city palace, destroyed by fire, and now the church opens onto a large open area.
A Venetian lion was erected on the bell tower of the church, which survived from the palace building. The interior of the church is decorated with valuable objects, sculptures, paintings and a carved altar.
