In the 18th century Kanfanar takes on the role of municipal centre in the South West area of the Peninsula where the mild Mediterranean climate becomes one with the natural characteristics of the Istrian inland. Discovering the beauties of Kanfanar area you can’t go around the sacral monuments such as the church of St. Sylvester from the 13th century, the church of St. Mary from Lakuće from the 14th century and the church of St. Agatha from the 10th century, the most important cultural monument of worldwide cultural heritage – medieval town of Dvigrad which is dominated by the remains of the Roman basilica but also the legend on the undiscovered treasure of the British pirate Captain Morgan, Draga as the area of fertile plowfields, wooded slopes and the Mediterranean herbs, Romualdo’s cave as the habitat of three thousand bats or Limski Channel as a protected nature reserve. For those eager for fun, adrenalin but also delicious food, the area of Kanfanar offers various programs: from the field-day of Istrian ox ‘boškarin’, across the steep rocks of Ladićevi krugi together with sports and family cycling and excursion tracks to true Istrian traditional gastronomic pleasures in a number of top-quality agro tourisms.
Review by Bianca
Nice location in centre-south Istria, from where you can easily access the mayor visiting sites of the Peninsula and just few km away from Rovigno. It's definitely a perfect location to visit the region and I highly suggest it to couples as well as to families.
