Basilica – A Biking, Hiking and Educational Trail
At the end of June, the Tourist Board of the Town of Rovinj-Rovigno completed, in cooperation with the Native Museum of Rovinj, a projectthe purpose of which was to add value to a section of the existing Limes trail by turningit into a biking, hiking, gastro and educational trail called Basilica. The trail stretches from the Valalta region (the Basìlica valley), along the greater area of the Lim Channel, and ends in Rovinjsko Selo. It passes along several significant historical sites, i.e. the churches of St. Bartholomew, St. Christopher, St. Thomas and St. Protus, and intertwines with the former Kanfanar-Rovinj railroad route. Alongside this mainly asphalted trail, lovers of biking and hiking will have a chance to enjoy the protected natural beauty of the rich vegetation growing along the Lim Channel, as well as the landscapes abounding in vineyards as well as olive and fruit orchards, thus offering numerous tasting possibilities on agricultural estates, from agricultural products to wine and olive oil. The trail further passes along the abandoned Roman quarry, underneath two overpasses of the old Kanfanar-Rovinj railroad, and alongside the equestrian center. The most attractive location is definitely the view spot above the Lim Channel.
11 educational information boards and 10 direction signs have been installed at the maintrail spots, and there are 4 maintained resting areas with benches and tables next to thechurches of St. Thomas, St. Christopher and St. Protus, as well as next to the Lim Channel viewing spot. A four-language brochure (Croatian, English, Italian, German) was designed for promotional purposes. It contains descriptions of various trail spots and the related map.
