This Istrian village is small and tame and the presence of nearby Nesactium is another attraction. In pre-Roman times Nesactium with his legendary king Epulon, was the capital of the tribal population of the peninsula called Histri. In 177 BC the town was defeated by the Romans and destroyed. Rebuilt upon the original Histrian pattern, it was a Roman town until the 46-45 BC, when the ancient Greek colonies Polai was elevated to Pietas Iulia, today Pula.
Valtura is definitely a great vacation town.
