Žminj

The small town of Žminj is located in the central part of Istria at 400 meters above sea level. It has a pleasant climate due to its favorable position of facing the sea, and it is surrounded by hills and valleys. In Žminj one can see the Church of St. Michael the Archangel and the Chapel of the Holy Trinity in which wall paintings from the 15th century are preserved. In 1178, Žminj was first mentioned in the charter of Pope Alexander III, and from the 12th century it represented a part of the Pazin Principality. The city used to have a strong military fortress due to the fact that it was surrounded by four towers, while today the remains of those walls are embedded in the walls of houses and fences.
