Trg Andrea Antico from Motovun, Croatia

The Andrea Antico square in Motovun is the only flat place in this tiny hill town. The Etruscans were not the only ones to build hill towns, for they are also quite numerous in the Istrian peninsula, in present-day Croatia. Motovun, or Montona in Italian, is the most beautiful of all such towns, with narrow streets and good use of its space. Its double fortifications and its urban structure date from the Venetian period. This small square appears much larger than it actually is, in comparison with the rest of the town.
