Vrsar has stood on a prominent hill overlooking the Adriatic coast since the Middle Ages. This position has given birth to extraordinary positions from which one can observe the surrounding islands, islets, bays and coves.
The largest of all viewpoints can be found just below the Church of St. Anthony of Padua, below the Small Gate of Vrsar from where it affords a wide view towards the south-west. It is one of the oldest and most spacious viewpoints of Vrsar. Protected by the shade of the trees and featuring a stone table, a bench and a traditional Istrian cistern, it hides in its background an intimate ambience of the small square spreading in front of the Small Gate and the Church of St. Anthony of Padua.
