The well


The well with a cistern on the main town square of Visnjan was built in the 19th century. The well is at the same time an important design element of the central square and even more important as a rainwater collection system. Such wells are typical in many Istrian places, thanks to the climate with little rainfall.

There were nice villas around, food and wine was very delicious, it is situated in a small village you cant miss it,and parking is very available
The famous well is situated at a high ground and the view from the place is superb and wonderful for relaxing and getting your mind off alot of things. I enjoyed my time at the place.
The ancient well is very deep with concrete sides. I loved watching the locals pump water from this location.
We visited the well (vishjan) and take 100 pictures, we also took a look at some of the things in the well such as a large fish that lived in the well. We also witnessed people cleaning the fish.
The place has nice garden for children to play around, my kids and i loved the reception and the services, and most importantly the food is exquisite!!
