With its location above the southern bank of the middle course of the river Mirna, Motovun has become the seat of the municipality and stands out as one of the best-preserved medieval urban complexes in Istria. Developing on steep hillsides over 3,500 years ago, its ancient history is confirmed by archaeological finds from the Bronze Age. Founded on the site of a Celtic fortress, its name is likely derived from the word "Montona." The first written mention of Motovun dates back to 804 AD, and the town evolved from a prehistoric settlement in the ancient period, retaining its significance as a fortified medieval settlement.
