If you take a walk through the village and than continue for about 300 meters (0,18 miles) you will arrive to Nesactium. In pre-Roman era Nesactium was the capital of the aboriginal population of the peninsula called Histri.
It is not easy to define Histri people. They were quite mysterious but certainly had a great sense of esthetics.
There are some theories stating their Celtic background, but who they were and where they came from has never been discovered for certain. Supposedly their main economic activities were trade and piracy all over the ancient Mediterranean Sea. All indicates they were a particular ethnical group, such as Etruscans in Italy.
Their still undiscovered history is one of the most fascinating European stories. Nesactium in particular is a place that brings to life stories and legends about king Epulon and his people.
