Motovun is Istria's most popular hilltop town with a medieval ambiance. The forest of Motovun, stretching along River Mirna down below the town, grows Istria's precious truffles and then, it was Motovun where Veli Jože, the good hearted giant of Istrian folk tales hailed from - and also, the place that he left - for a location unknown even today. There aren't many who live in the old town today, yet, due to its ambience, to its many art ateliers and events, to its gastronomic offers, Motovun attracts a lot of visitors.
