The delightful little village of Motovun lies between the well established tourist towns of Motovun and Groznjan in the northwest region of Istria. Even the coastal town of Porec is only 18 kilometers away. The town is worth a visit, especially due to its interesting architectural mixture. Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassical styles create a charming blend in Motovun. Fascinating attractions include the parish Church of St. Jerome built in the classical style in the 19th century and the Romanesque Church of St. Barnabas dating back to the 13th century. Here you can see the rare Glagolitic inscriptions as well as frescoes.

Motovun is surrounded by the luscious green and very scenic Mirna Valley, which is also perfect for walking and cycling. Additionally, there is the opportunity to explore the beautiful area on horseback. The Mirna Valley is used for agriculture because of the very fertile soil. Grapes, olives, fruits and vegetables all grow here. In recent years, rural tourism has been winning the people over more and more: The vacationer rents accommodation with a Croatian peasant family and gets to help with the harvest. If you, therefore, have always dreamed of helping with a grape harvest, Motovun is the perfect place to realize this dream.
