Definitely helps to have some sort of overview or map of the site explaining what everything is. We didn't, but we sort of trailed along a tour group, listening to the guide's explanation. It really added to the experience

How great is was to be here by ourselves on a beautiful fall morning. Wonderful atmosphere, breathtaking views, no admission to pay, no souvenir stands. Also no refreshments or restrooms, but you can't go far in Istria without finding a friendly konoba, so that is...More

Very interesting historical site. Well worth a visit with a very engaged and knowledgeable guide at Taverna Moncastell. Amazing how much history there is to tell. And don't forget a lunch at the taverna.

Still appears on good conditions. Perfect to visit in the good weather. Little bit windy after 3 o'clock. Perfect place to have pictures

I can't believe how few people visit this place, however that's probably what makes it so special! It's much bigger than I expected, in a beautiful location, and really interesting. Well worth a visit!
