Limski kanal – Pula

Sv. Lovreč – Limski kanal – Vodnjan-Dignano – Pula

On the second street light in Poreč you should turn right towards Baderna. You will be passing by villages of curious names: Varvari, Buići, Musalež, Kadumi, Ladrovići, Žbandaj, Katun... Right before Baderna there is a crossing that brings you to the road connecting Pula-Pola and Trieste, and you have to proceed right towards Pula. Sveti Lovreč was in times of Venetian rule a seat of the Venetian army force in Istria. Its name in those times was Sveti Lovreč Pazenatički. Before riding down to the shores of the Lim Channel you must stop. There is a beautiful view of the broad sea bay, a sea flooded carstic depression that looks like a fjord. Due to the preserved environment in the clear waters of the bay fish, date shells and oysters are grown. Further down the road you'll come to Bale-Valle. The medieval town is dominated by the church of St. Julian and the castle.

There are only 10 more kilometres to Vodnjan-Dignano and 20 to Pula-Pola from here. Vodnjan-Dignano's church of St. Blaž is the largest in Istria and its bell tower is the tallest in the region. The church is housing a collection of sacral art and Istrian mummies - preserved bodies of saints.

Pula-Pola is the largest town on the peninsula. Not too long ago large ships were being built here. Pula-Pola is a town of a millennium tradition, an open air antique museum. The most famous of its monuments is widely known and unique Arena.
