Svetvincenat

Svetvincenat, Savicenta, Sanvincenti – three names tor the same locality. In fact it was St. Vincent, a Hispanic martyr and the mediaeval abbey of the same name, after whom the village was named. The story began long time ago, on the site of today graveyard, when Benedictines, as first settlers, came and started clearing the bush and bringing the red Istrian land under cultivation. They built first houses and a church. It was therefore the Benedictine Abbey around which a town started to grow.

Bale

Bale is a small town in the south west of Istria, 15 km from Rovinj and 20 km from Pula.
The old part of the town is under a national preservation order due to its historical and architectural values of sacred objects, such as the St.Julian`s church, which holds a sarcophagus from the 8th century, the city gate, the circular stone paved streets and the buildings with elements of Venetian gothic and the refurbished palace Bembo.
It is estimated that there are 400 species of butterflies, and, therefore, the name “City of butterflies” is often affiliated with Bale.

Rovinj

Rovinj manages to combine, in a very interesting way, its rich tradition with the modern times. As it is also an active fishing port, you can experience the atmosphere of a small fishing village, especially during the popular fishermen’s festivities or at one of the traditional taverns called Spacio (in the past, very popular among fishermen). On the other hand, the town has been developing an exquisite gastronomy and offers a high standard of tourist services in general
