- Cultural monuments
Rich in natural and cultural beauties, Vižinada is a true cycling oasis in every season and the cycling trails are the ideal way to discover its natural beauty.
The Vižinada bike trail (101) is 27.9 kilometres long and is linked to several other trails. If you are heading from the square on the road to Poreč, after 600 metres turn right, turn left towards Bajkini. The next 5.2 kilometres are on an asphalt road through Markovići, Čuke and Brdo. At the ramp, turn left onto the track and after 1.1 km to the right, to the viewpoint Vrbanovica. You should take the same route to return to Mezgeci and the asphalt further towards Kaštelir, where this route is connected with the route Tar-Poreč. In the village Kranjčići you should turn left and drive for 2.2 km through Ohnići and Baldeš, and after you cross the main road in Lasiš, you should turn left for Staniše and drive to the main road towards Ferenci. Passing by the church of Saint Lovro we drive towards Lovran to the village of Grubići, where we reach the former route of the narrow-gauge “wine” railroad, Parenzana. This is undoubtedly the most impressive bike route in Istria. Along the Parenzana we drive 2.7 kilometres to the beautiful old stone bridge Sabadin, which is also a viewpoint. From here you can continue the tour of the Motovun-Buzet trail, or turn around and return to Vižinada.
Along this route there are a dozen of historical churches and chapels, two information centres, markets, restaurants and accommodation in Vižinada and Kaštelir. And the views of the unique Istrian landscapes can be perpetuated on five prominent photo points. This bike trail is well marked, but guides can be arranged at the tourist information centre.
