Sacred Heart Parish for the city ​​districts of Voštarnica and Brodarica was founded on the 12th of December 1933 by the archbishop Munzani when the east wing of the Villa Filomena was decorated as a chapel.

 

Villa Filomena was built by Dobrović family in 1900 as one of the first buildings on the new waterfront opposite to the Old Town (Branimirova obala). The building has its own ambience and urban values, and in particular is characterized by finely carved white stone on the western facade. The building was completely rebuilt and renovated together with a large church by the architect Ivo Novak in 1984. The church altar is decorated with stained glass window made by the artist Josip Botteri.
