Kršete - Carsette

Kršete - Carsette

The agricultural settlement called Kršete is situated in a fertile green valley, stretching towards the sea. This area has been settled since ancient times which can be proved by epigraphic Roman foundlings originating from this place.

The most important building is the church of St. Peter and Paul from the 16th century, renovated in 1885. Among the most important items are two figures in low relief carved on stone pillars probably depicting St. Peter and Paul. They originate from the 12th and 13th century and belong to a series of similar artworks found in the area of Istria, two of them being built into one house in Poreč and one in the central part of the façade of the church of St. Servul in Buje-Buie.
