Istrian Hill Tops

Discover the green Istrian hills crowned with the old city walls, the keepers of ancient historic tales and legends and get to know the beauty of "green Istira“, hidden from everyday life, the towns surrounded by woods and hills.

Legend has it that once upon a time in the valley of Mirna, lived giants who were so big that they were able to build the many hilltop towns found in the area.

Visit the monumental town of Motovun, situated on a 277 meter high hill and surrounded by defensive walls which guard the rich treasures of cultural monuments, some dating back to the 12th century.

Some scientists claim that Motovun is on the very crossroads of the Energy Meridians of the Earth, the so-called dragon currents that supply positive life energy and relaxation, soothe, calm and infuse spirituality. That may be the very reason why Motovun is on of the most popular Istrian tourist destinations!

After Motovun, the narrow road takes you across a plateau to another small town, Oprtalj, the most picturesque town of Northern Istria. It was once a fortification enclosed by city walls but the houses have been built over its remnants so that there are only former gates to be seen barely visible between them.

The walk ends in the magnificent setting of a Typical Istrian tavern which serves some of the autochthonous Istrian delicacies.

This tour is available from Porec, Rovinj and Pula.
