Kaaštelir - Labinci

On the western coast of Istria, surrounded by rich Mediterranean vegetation blended with olive groves, vineyards and fields, you can find the Kaštelir-Labinci Municipality. Two villages - Kaštelir and Labinci, ital. Castelier - S. Domenica, have been gradually urbanistically expanding during the centuries which resulted in their being merged into one municipality located some ten kilometers north of Poreč. According to historical records, Labinci was once a bigger settlement than Kaštelir, whereas today it is the other way around, which is also visible from the name.

A legend says that the inhabitants of Labinci used to go to Motovun on horseback every Sunday to pick up a priest to have him serve Sunday mass in their church. On their way back to Motovun they would, as compensation, clean up the Motovun Square. During the history both villages used to be under the jurisdiction of Motovun and later Vižinada. Today, numerous showrooms can be found in their suburbs which came to represent a modern industrial zone which will soon include even a prestigious culinary school.
