Situated in the center of nortrhern Istria, at 348 meters above sea level, in the middle of natural beauty, rises the town of Roc, located about 10 kilometers from Buzet. The city was founded in ancient history - at first it was arranged as an Illyrian settlement, and then it became a Roman castrum surrounded by numerous smaller settlements.

In the Middle Ages, it turned into a fortified castle, separated by walls and defensive towers and the Small and Large Gates. During the 15th and 16th centuries, Roch was the center of Croatian literacy, editing and printing based on the oldest Slavic Glagolitic alphabet.

Today's appearance and notion of Roch dates back to the time of Venetian rule. Roch, which has become the destiny of many visitors, tourists and those enchanted by the history, Glagolitic alphabet and the beauty of the hill below Chicharija, which descends through the Mirna valley towards the warm sea, keeps pace with modern events.
