Titov Trg from Buzet, Croatia

The incredibly small church square in Buzet is positioned at the highest point of this settlement. However, it affords no sense of perspective, giving one the sensation of being an interior space, since its small perimeter makes the buildings in the square seem much taller than they actually are, and the sky only a small detail in the far distance. Buzet is yet another Istrian hill town, once fortified by the Venetians as the base of their rule in this area. Its strange-sounding name comes from the word “buză” in the Istro-Romanian dialect, which means „lip”.
