Krasica - Crassiza

Krasica - Crassiza


Five kilometres from Buje-Buie towards Pula-Pola lies the settlement Krasica with nearby hamlets like Gardoši, Baredine, Lozari, Punta and others. The scattered hills used to be seats of prehistoric fortresses.
The findings from the Roman Age reveal huge fortresses like Gradina, located at the important road – Via Flavia.

Inscriptions, artefacts and coins, votive figurine of the Goddess Fortune, fragments of carved marble and columns are kept in museums in Trieste, Pula-Pola und Poreč or have been built into the side wall of the church in Buje-Buie.

Right after the turn to Baredine rises a hill, hiding amidst its lush plants the remains of the legendary Castrum Lionis, which was donated in 1102 to the church in Aquilea by the Count of Istria Ulrich II, the son of the Istrian Margrave Ulrich I of Weimar.
