Churches and Castles

Churches and castles show clearly how the passage of time, and cultural changes, have moulded the characteristics of the Karstic territory, visible in the customs and practices of former days.

Over the centuries religious buildings have played an important part in the rituals of rural life, and were erected in strategic positions where they could offer protection to the local population.

Even today many of these monuments stage important cultural exhibitions, based on folklore, that bring history to life by recalling the events that have marked life in these parts.
