The Venetian erected a new fortification system during their rule. City walls, city gates, square towers and the loggia (see on the picture) are relatively well preserved.
The setlement got the atribute Pazenaticki, from the Italian "paese" = village, because of the said function.
Sv. Lovrec was the seat of the army commander of the Venetian part of Istria and later the seat of the captain for the village settlements south of the Mirna River.
See this old monument inside of the Town Loggia with characteristic Venetian lion which simbolized that S. Lovrec was a part of Venetian Republic
