Today, Tar and Vabriga expanding one towards the other have become one, devided just by the Pula - Trieste road. From a historical point of view it would be more exact to say three settlements: Tar, Frata and Vabriga; Frata being the suburb of Tar. In the past these villages formed three parishes, three church towers, three chur- ches: St. Martin, St. Mihovil, St. Anton.

Tar – Points of interests
The ancestors of the Tar and Vabriga inhabitants have chosen the place for their settlement with great success. It is a fertile upland (112 m above sea level), gently inclining towards the sun and sea in the South-West, and at the same time arising towards the Mirna estuary in the North. It is a wonderful lookout: to the North – Novigrad, to the South – Poreč. During clear weather the Alps may be seen, and at the same time the Tar church tower offers a view of St. Marco church tower in Venice, located on the opposite side of the Adriatic. Looking back this is an area where life has been going on in harmony with olive groves and vineyards. Almonds and figs wheat and vegetables played an important role as well. The inhabitants of Tar and Vabriga may often be seen either driving a tractor or sailing a boat as two are their ploug-fields – land and sea. Today they are also engaged in catering and tourism facilities.
