    Favorite thing: The parish church was first mentioned in 1310 but its present look dates from 1770 when the new church was built on the site of an older church from the beginning of the 16th century. There is a 36 m high bell tower from 1721 next to the church. The church is dedicated to saints whom people from Istria worshiping among the most, Saint Vitus, Saint Modestus and Crescentia.
    It is located right opposite to the Kaštel, on the main city square, where locals gather together before church service or events which took place in the town.

    Favorite thing: The Renaissance loggia over which there was a fonticus (granary) in case of crop failure, famine or siege, all date back to that period. The Loggia was first time mentioned in the 14th century but its present look dates from 1597. Its ground floor, where loggia is, and the first floor used to serve as a court and the prison, while its top floor was a storehouse - granary.
