Shy and reclusive at the first sight, the green Brtonigla reveals slowly, and those who discover it, hardly resist to the power of its charm. It offers the best from the Istrian inland – natural parks and caves, picturesque hills, rich flora and fauna, and the excellently preserved small churches and chapels testify about the past. The numerous acres of vineyards and olive groves are surrounded by pathways that lead towards meadows and woods, deep into the centre of vibrating nature that lives intact, far away from the modern civilisation. It is also a place where you can find superior wines and olive oils - many family cellars and tasting premises invite the travellers to discover the authentic power of the local lifestyle. Brtonigla is ideal for those who love active holidays, since there is horse riding, cycling, and walking on offer. Braver souls can leap high into the air from the cliffs and soar above the nearby Mirna river, or dive into the mysterious deep blue world, or even discover the beautiful karst caves.

Quiet, small town
The town Brtonigla is rather small, but quiet, with several nice restaurants in the neigbourhood. If you are in Brtonigla, go straight to San Rocco hotel. Top cuisine, beautiful atmosphere and view.
