CREEK BUTONIGA – THE HIDDEN JEWEL OF ISTRIA

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | No Working time | Free Entrance U subotu 4.2.2017. godine uputio sam se u kanjon potoka Butonige, kako bih istražio taj skriveni dragulj Istre. Potok Butoniga je poznat kao jedan od tri najveća pritoka istoimenog akumulacijskog jezera, no postoji prilično malo teksta i fotografija o njemu i to sam želio ispraviti. Nedaleko Starog grada (Zelengrada) u potok Butoniga utječe i Grdoselski potok, a područje oko Grdoselskog potoka slovi za jedinu istarsku prašumu. Oba su potoka prepuna prekrasnih slapova, a u vrijeme mog posjeta potok je obilovao vodom, što mu je dalo svu čar. U pet sati koliko sam proveo u kanjonu izmijenila su se sva četiri godišnja doba i na samom kraju sam izgubio bitku s kišnim oblacima, no ostaje veliko zadovoljstvo i oduševljenje potokom koji je urezao svoje korito u kamen i oblikovao prava mala remek dijela. Na području oko nekadašnjeg Zelengrada postojalo je čak 10 mlinova, a ostatke njih četiri sam pronašao prilikom ovog foto istraživanja. Područje Grdosela i Butonige je od iznimne povijesne vrijednosti i u istraživanje prirodnih ljepota te povijesti ovog kraja ću zasigurno uložiti još dosta vremena, a isto preporučam i vama, jer ovo je
