In the last few years in Istria, as everywhere in the world, free climbing is a sport that is increasingly spreading and gaining popularity.
In the vicinity of the remains of Dvigrad, one of the most famous Istrian medieval towns that lies in the inner part of Limska draga, which was abandoned in the 17th century, is a rock-climbing site with 63 climbing routes. The most difficult and challenging route known as Malvasia was only climbed by the famed Italian climber Manolo–Maurizio Zanolla at the beginning of the 1990s.
The deep valley Limska drage which starts near Pazin, ends at the seacoast north of Rovinj-Rovigno. At the end of this 12-kilometre-long bay known as Lim Bay stand the very impressive cliffs rising high above the very sea. This popular rock-climbing site has some 60 climbing routes up to 25 metres in height where you can climb all year round.
