Tinjanska draga (or valley) is only part of the longest valley in Croatia - Limska Draga - whose length, including the Lim Bay, is about 40 km. It is assumed that in the past the whole of Limska draga was a river bed, probably the Pazinčica, which changed direction towards the Pazin abyss with the rise of Orljak hill.

The valley abruptly changes its direction at the foot of Tinjan and extends southward, while near Dvigrad it takes a westerly direction continuing towards the coast to Lim. The plateau on both sides of the valley is over 300 m high, whilst at the foot of it there are a number of fertile plains on the red Istrian soil known as terra rossa or crvenica.
