Motovun/Montona is a village in central Istria, Croatia. The population of the village itself is 531, with a total of 983 residents in the municipality ; 192 of the residents have Italian as their mother language. The Parenzana was a narrow gauge railroad that ran from Trieste to Poreč/Parenzo between 1902-1935, passed valley below the town.DescriptionMotovun/Montona is a medieval town that grew up on the site of an ancient city which was part of the Castellier culture but its name is unknown. It is situated on a hill 270m above sea level with houses scattered all over the hill. On the inner walls are several coats-of-arms of different Motovun/Montona ruling families and two gravestones of Roman inhabitants (dating from the 1st century).In the 10th and 11th centuries it belonged to the Bishop of Poreč/Parenzo. From 1278 it was taken over by Venice and surrounded by solid walls which are still intact today, and used as a walkway with unique views over the four corners of Istria. All three parts of the town are connected by a system of internal and external fortifications with towers and city gates containing elements of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance styles, built between the 14th and 17th centuries. It is a typical example of Venetian colonial architecture.
