History of Buzet

History of Buzet

The area of Buzet has been inhabited since ancient times. Proof of this are prehistoric remains of stone objects found in Golupska cave, Podrebarska cave and some other caves. Illyrian tribes inhabited these areas in the Bronze Age when they began to build hilltop settlements surrounded by walls.

From AD 177 to AD 476 this area was under Roman rule. At the time of the plague, Buzet escaped this deadly disease, so that in AD 192 its inhabitants put up a commemorative tablet dedicated to goddess Augusta for having protected the town Pinquentum (Buzet) from this disease. So, Buzet was mentioned more than 1800 years ago. This period was followed by Byzantine rule and after the great movement of the peoples came the Croats and Slovenes.

At the end of the 8th century Istria was under the rule of the Franks who introduced the feudal system. In order to protect Prankish properties, towns-fortifications were built, with German families as their feudal lords. The remains of Crni Grad, Bijeli Grad above Rocko Polje, as well as Petrapilosa castle in the valley of the Bracana river date from this period.
