Off the beaten path - Svetvinčenat

Svetvinčenat (Italian Savicenta)is located in the southern part of central Istria, about 30 minutes drive from Rovinj, and aside from being a charming town centered around the Grimani castle (pictured), hosts random festivals during the summer and autumn (at the castle of course).  Still so far under the radar that the Svetvinčenat tourist association's website is only in Croatian (worth checking out to take a look at the "foto-galerija"), at 1/2 an hour from Rovinj or Pula and under 15 minutes from Bale, it makes a nice afternoon detour, stopping for a coffee at one of the little cafes or a pizza at basically the only lunch spot in town.
