ROMAN VALBANDON

Valbandon’s beach

As many as seven Roman patrician families had their magnificent villas built in the area of Fazana, together with small production plants.

At one of these sites, in Valbandon bay, every July we go back into the past, all the way to classical Roman times!

Today, workshops are organized to demonstrate the technique of making Roman mosaics and replicas of amphoras from the famous Laecanius workshop.

A fashion show presenting jewelry from the Roman era and gastronomic offer of a “Roman menu” in a torch-lit setting try to recreate the atmosphere of bygone times in this area.
