The past on Poreč’s waterfront promenade

Take off in a time machine to the past on Poreč’s waterfront promenade, squares and streets to a time when nobles, knights, jugglers, hawkers and drummers, flag bearers and street performers ruled.  A three hundred year old tradition has been brought to life with Giostra, a festival of events and knightly games dating from 1745.

Let loose in the magic of Giostra through musical notes and dance steps from the 18th century, they will take you into a world of lavish silk crinolines, the mysterious gazes of noble ladies, loyal knights in stiff armour, brave horsemen and tables overflowing with rich, carefully chosen delicacies, excellent wines and the intoxicating scent of deserts will fulfil your experience.
