It is dominated by a Mediterranean climate with pleasant temperatures in summer and mild winters.
The town of Kanfanar counts about 600 inhabitants. It was developed during the XVII. century when people from the nearby medieval village of Dvigrad moved because of a terrible plague, the ruins of the castle of Dvigrad can still be visited.

There takes place the tempting exhibition of the Istrian ox ,called “boškarin”, which is an endangered species.
