Motovun - one of the towns that were once upon a time, by the legend, built by giants.

An old legend says that, a long time ago, giants lived in the Mirna valley. They were so big that they, while they were looking the towns on the hills over the river Mirna, added to each other another tools and big rocks from hand to hand. One of the towns that were built by the legendary giants of the time was Motovun.
Much later, when Istria was inhabited by ordinary people, the Giants began to disappear, but in the legends and stories of Vladimir Nazor stayed remembered Motovun giant Veli Joze, who was so big and strong that he could shake whit his hands belfray of the Motovun church.
