Vacation in Istria, Croatia 4 #photography

This trip was to the town of Motovun. I was lazy and stayed home at the hotel that day, but I thought I’d share the pictures my mom took.

Motovun is a medieval town that grew up on the site of an ancient city called Castellieri. It is on a hill 270 metres (886 feet) above sea level with houses scattered all over the hill. In ancient times, both Celts and Illyrians built their fortresses at the location of present-day Motovun. The name of the village is also of Celtic origin, derived from Montona, meaning “a town in the hills”. Source:
