Senatus populusque fasanensis

Senatus populusque fasanensis

Owing to its geographical position, the proximity of sea and fertile land with Mediterranean field crops, Fazana was an important economic centre during the Roman civilization; in those times, Fazana was under the administration of the Roman colony Pula.

The area of Fazana comprises Runci cove in the south, the coastal area of Peroj in the north and fertile land with olive groves and vineyards in the hinterland, in Roman times, Fazana was the centre of olive oil production on the entire istrian coast. The proximity of sea, enabling fishing, and the protected harbour where Roman merchant ships could berth made it an ideal place to live, work and rest.

The area of Fazana, like entire Istria, came under the Roman rule in 177 BC, when the Romans conquered the main Histrian town of Nesactium-Vizace. However, it was not until the mid-1 st century AD that a more intensive settling or Romanization of the Istrian peninsula began.
