Hiking trail St. Flor - The legend of gold
The picturesque village of Kranjci, situated three kilometers from Labin, reveals the legend of hidden treasure on a new tourist trail leading to St. Flor’s church.
Walking over groves and paths of rustling autumn leaves that end up on a hill at the church, you will be revealed the legend of the wealthy Greeks who had it built in the sixth century. Due to seven-year drought they had to withdraw from this area, but a part of gold load was too heavy for their horses, so they buried it near the little church with a secret vow which was never revealed.
The church is on the list of protected cultural monuments of Croatia, and is dedicated to the same bishop whose feast is celebrated on October 27th.
It takes 20 minutes to walk from Kranjci to the church, and you can also take a bike ride.
