The rooftops of Vrsar along with their corresponding chimneys, make the view from above, at the Vrsar traditional architecture, particularly interesting. It is a well-known fact from many parts of Istria that chimneys reflect not only the local traditional architectual trait, but also specific climate characteristics of a place or an area.
Traditional Vrsar chimneys were narrow and tall, originally built of stone, later also from brick, always with exterior stucco walls. While in other parts of Istria chimney tops are generally of pyramidal or roof-like shape, in Vrsar they are constructed exclusively of tiles laid at a 45-degree angle, forming a ridge shape. The top of such construction has, depending on the chimney proportions, a few horizontally laid tiles which serve as obstruction to wind and water.
