We are located in the northwest part of the Istrian Peninsula, 5 km from the sea, 10 km from Slovenia and 30 km from Italy.

Brtonigla was first mentioned in documents from the year 1234 as Ortoneglio or Hortus Niger, which means 'the garden of red soil'. The traditional folk festival is the feast of "San Rocco", which is celebrated on the 16th of August..Brtonigla is known for its large presence of the Italian ethnic minority and was the first Istrian town in Croatia to become a member of the Italian and European Association of Cities of wine.
