Church of the Holy Spirit (Štrped)

This small church is the most interesting sacral structure in the Buzet area, since it is defined by three periods and phases of construction. The rectangular Romanesque nave was built first, then the late-Romanesque presbytery was added on the eastern side. The apses reveal lovely Gothic windows with pointed upper parts, elaborate features and original glass which is rarely seen in Istria.

In the third phase of construction the Renaissance sacristy was added on the southern side. During the 17th century a large Baroque portico (lopica) with an unusual ground plan and fan-shaped ceiling was built. One of the interesting details from the church interior is surely the presbytery with radiating vault. It is a unique example of this type in the entire region.
