    during our visit to the beautiful city of Rovinj decided to visit the site of Monkodonja driven also by the fine reviews read. Such a disappointment! The site is located just a few minutes drive from the city centre, it is accessed by a cross in the country of one of the main streets. Just arrived we found ourselves at the "nothing", an old faded sign at the entrance to a trail dirty and not held with Brambles and we even found a small boar died already in a State of decomposition at the entrance! ... after walking into this place completely isolated we found ourselves in front of the ruins, even those not at all appreciated. We were just, just long enough to take two photos in the panorama of the Bay that on a clear day is not bad! Potentially could be a visit pretty but really like this disappoint!

    Can be reached via a dirt road with the car. Very small parking lot. On the site, multilingual information boards explain the excavation area of the Hill. Sturdy footwear is recommended.
