Departure is from the Palud ornithological nature reserve, a brackish marsh just 10 km southeast away from Rovinj where you can enjoy the rich variety of ornithofauna while listening to the chirping of 217 registered bird species.
Continuing along the road you will come to Bale, one of the best hidden gems of Istria. A few kilometres west of Kanfanar and you can catch a glimpse of the medieval Dvigrad and if you climb up to the town, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the beautiful Lim Fjord landscape. Just to stir your imagination - you are now in an area where many legends and mysteries based on historical events still live on: that of Dvigrad devastated by the plague due to an ancient curse, of Captain Morgan’s pirates’ buried treasure near to the village, which was named after him (Mrgani), the cave where the remains of primitive man were found and where, as legend has it, St Romuald used to live as a hermit in the Middle Ages. You will certainly enjoy visiting all these places.
Near the point of your arrival, by the village of Sošići, is Maklavun hill, an astral-archaeological site and a burial ground from the Bronze Age. Take a look at the sky as here you will find the first most famous solar observatory in the whole of Croatia. Finally, take time to pass through Rovinjsko Selo, a village founded in 1526 by refugees from the area of Zadar who were escaping from the advancement of the Turks.
Exhausted from so many exciting experiences, complete your journey in a local Istrian tavern, rewarding yourself with a delicious lunch accompanied with a goblet of wine - Captain Morgan would have done the same.
