Attraction details
Owner description: St Jeronimo’s Church and the area of the current Dominican monastery, are part of the large Augustinian monastery complex founded in 1315 by the feudal rulers of Rijeka, the Devinski counts, and was terminated throughout the first half of 15th century by their successors, the Walsee barons. The votive chapels of the Holy Trinity and of the Immaculate Conception are the most important gothic monuments in Rijeka. The Holy Trinity chapel was built by Rijeka captain, Raunacher Martin and his wife Maragrit in 1450 and their emblems can be found on the cantilevers at the entrance to the chapel and remains of frescoes on the gothic ribbed vault are evidence of the influence of the gothic cultural circle.

A beautiful church in the city center. An exceptionally good preacher with the usual mass. Easy access from the city harbor. Free entry outside of daylight time. An exceptional place for a shorter contemplation. If you're lucky to talk to Don Marijan Jurčević it's a full hit for you

Thank Ivan P

Very nice church but not special. There are more unique places in Rijeka, but without visiting this one, the collection of visited churches of Rijeka is far away from complete. A must-see on my list.

St. Jerome’s church is part of a great monastery complex founded by the Augustinians in the fourteenth century. It was completed in the first half of the following century.
The building is of baroque style though it was originally a gothic church. It was built in this style after an earthquake which took place in 1759. It is a single nave church whose high altar is really impressive. It’s a marble sculptural set by the sculptor Antonio Michelazzia consisting of two groups of three reddish pillars topped each group by ionic order capitals over acanthus leaves supporting an upper arch crowned with a tympan on the sides of which two angels with open wings hold a shield. On the extreme sides at the same height as the stated pillars there are two statues slightly leaning their heads towards the center of the altar (the shrine). Behind the shrine, a bit higher, there is a painting depicting the Virgin with St. Jerome and St. Augustine which is a real masterpiece by an unknown artist.
Though it weren’t just to behold the said altar it would be worth visiting that church. Notwithstanding that there are also other elements inside the temple which are very interesting, such as the marble altars of St. Monica and St. Ruzarija and also some other chapels.
The façade is quite sober but the semi-detached columns and the tympan forming the frame of the entrance are very nice from an aesthetic standpoint. Above the entrance there are three glass windows and three empty niches over them respectively
The church lies in a quiet place of Rijeka: Trg Riječke Rezolucije, where all traffic should be prohibited. Hopefully it will some day be so in order that the quietness of the area may be in line with the fervour inspired by the church despite the fact that some outbuildings of the municipal administration lie on the same square.

A baroque church that was originally built in gothic style during the 14th century, but was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1750 in today’s condition. It was part of a monastery complex and next to it is the Chapel of Holy Trinity.
