Route made by the hiking group SERMAR
The road starts in the medieval city Gracisce on the Istrian peninsula. This peninsula is of great historical, cultural and natural interest. Its interior is famous for its medieval towns (Grožnjan, Motovun, Oprtalj, Hum, etc ...), also for its olive groves and vineyards. The interior of Istria is also a very interesting area to enjoy active holidays, hiking and biking routes, climbing, paragliding, etc. It presents an interesting gastronomic offer in which they emphasize their wines, their cheese, the olive oil. Its fabulous nature, its beautiful landscapes and other places in the center of the peninsula will not leave anyone indifferent.
At the entrance to the city of Gracisce, next to highway 64, we found an informative panel of the route.
We take the North direction, ascending slightly along 100 meters of length, to immediately continue on a track that runs downhill until reaching the remains of the church in ruins of San Simón (km 0,600).
Here we take east direction, leaving the track that runs south to our right.
Soon we started walking along a narrow path that is actually a dry ravine.
After 2.3 kms of descent we reach the small village of Mekadašnjih, where the remains of some Žlepčari (mills) remain.
Now the path continues along a track, while a water course accompanies us on our right.
At km 3.3 we leave the track and go down a path for about 200 meters cross the stream.
Another 300 meters more (km 3.6) we reach the old bridge under which is the Sopot waterfall.
After making a series of photos in this place we continue in NE direction in slight ascension, reaching the town of Floricici.
Now we continue on the paved road. Already always in continuous ascension.
We pass by the Skrbanski Brijeg estate (km 4.4).
We continue ascending the asphalt, at km 5.4 we reach the small village of Lovrići.
At km 5.7 we have the option to continue on the road, or to ascend a path to the hermitage of Santa María Magdalena.
We return by a gravel road to the road, to continue ascending towards Gracisce.
At km 8.6 we leave the road and continue along a dirt track, until at km 9.3 we reach highway 64 where we continue in the SE direction for about 300 meters to reach Gracisce where we started and now we finish the route.
