Motovun - Montona

Since the prehistoric times Motovun-Montona has been dominating its wider surroundings. According to recent researches of the New Age scientists, Motovun-Montona owes this status to its position on the crossroads of Earth's energetic meridians or the so called ''Dragon's furrows''. These meridians transmit Earth's positive life energy and in the places they intersect, as in the case of Motovun, a powerful source of energy is created - the ''breathing orifice'' of the planet Earth.

Motovun-Montona is especially attractive due to its medieval town walls that surround the town in a ring-like manner and the view of the vineyards and the Motovun Park Forest. The tourist and gastronomic offer turned Motovun-Montona into one of the most popular excursion destinations of the tourists who spend their holidays on the west and east coast of Istria.

The area around the town can be seen while walking the Motovun Park Forest in search of the gastronomic specialty - the truffle, while visiting the vineyards of teran, pinot, malvasia on the south-western slopes, while hunting or cycling. Since 1903, in the part of the town called Kanal every third Monday since 1903 a cattle fair is held. One of the legends related to Motovun is the one about Veli Jože (Big Jože), based on it Vladimir Nazor wrote the short story of the same name.
