Tinjan | Villas, cottages and apartments

Tinjan, a fort town know in the ancient Rome as Attinianum, was a border town guarding the Porec ager. The Romans used it to guard the area from the inland that was not completely under the roman rule. During the sixteenth century it became a real town, not only a fort any more. Today it guards its history through its material and immaterial heritage: stone walls, folklore dances, storytelling, blacksmith crafts architecture and pristine gastronomy. You should not miss visiting the Istrian prosciutto festival.
