Nesazio, despite not having the fame or the magnificence of the Arena of Pula, is a small and hidden treasure. We reccomend a visit in this place, which tells a story dating back at the first roman expansion in the area. Nesazio was the biggest village of the ancient population of the Istri, from which the istrian peninsula took name. In 177 b.c this fortified centre was one of the last to fall under roman domination, after a long siege. The story was remembered by two of the most important roman historian, Ennio and Livio, in his famous “Ad Urbe Condita”. The city became a roman castle but lost its importance in favour of Pola, which became the main roman city in the zone. We know that Nesazio continued to live in pre-christhian and bizantine era, and the foundation of two basilicas prove that. It was probably abandoned after the VI century, because of the slavs invasions that destroyed the village. Today a large part of the foundations is visible, the most important are the two basilicas and the temples of the roman forum. There is a small and free museum which contains some information about the history and photos of the archeological campain during the first years of the '900. Nesazio is easy to reach with a short trip with the car following the indication for Valtura.
