Saint Mary of the Assumption Church is located along the Roman decumanus road, close to the eastern edge of the former city walls and close to the first port on the Rječina River. The church’s interior is decorated with baroque sculptures created by Jacopo Contiero, Giovanni and Leonardo Paccassi, Pasuale Lazzarini, Antonio Michelazzi, Sebastian Petruzzi and with stucco works created by Giulio Quario. The altarpieces are mainly the works of Ljubljana painter, Valentin Metzinger and also Ivan Franjo Gladić. The gravestones exhibited around the church belong to members of the brotherhoods, patrician families and of priests who were buried in the church up until 1901.
