Josef Ressel Square

The platform of the Josef Ressel Square was erected on an embankment between the Municipal palace and the tall wall of the second circle of the town walls. Today it is a beautiful viewpoint and a unique terrace. This area used to be a crucial point in the Motovun fortification system as it connects the barbican with the suburb, the Borgo, and the most important Motovun gates, the one leading to the citadel, the oldest part of the town.
