Kanfanar first appeared in the middle of the eleventh century. However, the village did not become a municipality until the late seventeenth century, when the inhabitants of the neighboring village of Dvigrad left their homes and founded a new settlement in nearby Kanfanar. At the end of the nineteenth century, the railway was built in and around Kanfanar, bringing many merchants and merchants to the village. As a result, Kanfanar quickly became a significant traffic point. During the Second World War, however, a part of the then built mansions was destroyed. This meant that valuable historical items were lost. However, the locals have used their chance for a new beginning and today the village shines again in its old glory.
