ISTRIADUCTION December | Free Entrance From Puntera to the Raša valley The new Barban walking trail starts at Puntera. It moves downhill on a white winding road all the way to the Raša valley. Along the trail, there are plaques with interesting facts about the area. As well as the fact that the Raški kanal is 12 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide. And views of the bay and fields are inevitable for a photo keepsake. These are the only fields in Istria below sea level, drained during the rule of Italy, in the late twenties of last century, and between the war they fed the population. If you want, you can continue your journey to Blaz, where we will find several choices. A short stream used to drive a mill, and today only stone remains remain. That’s where the road stops and we head back the same way. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS

ISTRIADUCTION April | All Year | Free Entrance Lake Butoniga; it is located in the center of Istria and supplies water to the entire area up to the city of Pula. This artificial lake was created in the 80's, and since it is located in the middle of the Istrian picturesque hills, it gives the surroundings a special beauty and thus creates incredibly beautiful scenes and views that leave no one indifferent. This accumulation lake was created by immersing the valley of the left tributary of the river Mirna, where its torrent tributaries Butoniga, Dragućki and Račički potok meet. Although swimming is forbidden in this lake, precisely because of the water supply, you can still enjoy a walk around the lake, climb the surrounding hills and enjoy the view of many Istrian places that look especially beautiful when viewed from a height. Choose a bright and sunny day for a walk so that you can enjoy the beautiful views of the hills and the surrounding area, and later stop in nearby Motovun for a glass of fine wine and first-class dishes with truffles.

ISTRIADUCTION All Year | No working time | Free Entrance Svetvinčenat, Savicenta, San Vincenti, three names of the same place, starting from the name of the patron saint, the Hispanic martyr St. Vincent and the abbey of the same name around which the town developed. Valuable Benedictines pioneered the clearing of forests, cultivated red land, built a dwelling and a church, thus attracting the first settlers. Among the tall cypresses that hide the oldest preserved sacrilegious building, their old Ora et labora password is still murmuring today (pray and work). The area was, as it is today, devoid of watercourses, so the abbey was erected near a puddle that was drained only a few years ago (Suhaca). Savicenti may be full of apologies, but the most important thing is to experience it, to walk it, to experience it. Explore every corner because each one hides its story. Learn and experience history, myths and legends .. Learn all about the witch Mara, the mysterious knight ....

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | Working time: 0-24h | Entry Fee The trip took me to Blaz Cove, the cove on the Raklja side of the Bay of Raša ... The bay, which is known for its former mills, which were almost level with the sea and were driven by fluids from a nearby still active source. Although no longer visible, there were roads that were once very important in Roman times, running between Rijeka and Pula. Today, the Blaz is known for its natural habitat for mussels, which unfortunately due to their negligent picking, are decaying and fewer and fewer of them, as evidenced by the coast full of shells. The bay is worth enjoying along with your family and friends, and who knows, you might find a piece of unexplored history. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS
