Abstract: Restoration of wall paintings in historical buildings along Croatian coastal area is most often motivated by serious damage of material structure caused by moisture and atmospheric salt. In this paper three historical buildings with wall paintings from Romanesque period will be presented. All of them have been built on similar location and have been exposed to similar climate conditions. As a result of material structure analyses it became obvious that they share the same kind of plaster done with certain ratio of crushed brick as aggregate and stone as building material. Fragments of wall paintings are preserved and unity of presentation has been achieved by use of restoration plaster. These paintings are located in church tower of St Mary’s Benedictine monastery in Zadar, in pre-Romanesque St. Michael’s Church in Ston and pre-Romanesque St. John the Baptist Church on Sipan Island near Dubrovnik.
