Barbariga I Villas Croatia

Nestled on the southwest coast of Istria, just south of Rovinj and approximately twenty kilometres northwest of Pula, lies the small village of Barbariga. The small settlement is located on a cape formerly known as Punta Cissana, named after the ancient city of Cissa. The ancient city has many legends: one being that the god tried to destroy the settlement due to its residents’ debauched lifestyles. More recent findings, however, have found that the city may have been flooded in the 8th Century. Nowadays, the cape is better known as the Barbariga Peninsula. As you may guess – and discover during a stay in our Croatian holiday villas – Barbariga is steeped in history.
