The Church of St. Euphemia, often known as the Basilica of St. Euphemia, although it is not formally a basilica minor, is a Baroque church located in the heart of the historic part of Rovinj, Croatia, dominating the town.

This three-nave church was built between 1725 and 1736 over the remains of older, early Christian structures. The dedication was originally to Saint George, later to Saints George and Euphemia; the present building is dedicated to Euphemia only. Its façade dates from 1883.

The relics of Saint Euphemia are preserved in a Roman sarcophagus from the sixth century. The church contains several treasures and works of art: Gothic statues from the 15th century, paintings from the 16th and the 17th centuries: Last Supper and Christ in the Gethsemane.
