Town gate

A peninsula with the historical Umag core was once an island separated from the mainland. High defence walls were built around the village in the 10th century and there was a drawbridge on the entrance gate. The gate was located in Garibaldi Street between the houses with numbers 19 and 21. The slant wall (support) on the left side of the house number 8 in the same street still witnesses the existence of the aforementioned gate. This street was recently renewed. The old gate foundation remains were discovered during that process.

Tiola Cape

Back in the ancient times, Umag area was highly populated. The Roman village of Sepomaia was located on the part of the coast from the Katoro peninsula, over Tiola Cape and Sipar to Zambratia. The research being conducted on the Tiola Cape keeps revealing more and more information about the Roman villa which was decorated with colourful mosaics, which had floor heating, thermae and the necessary tank which supplied it with water. Parts of the mosaic which decorated it on the inside have been discovered as well. Next to the villa, coal graves have also been found. According to the objects found in the graves, they are probably graves of people who worked in the villa. Two late Roman graves have been discovered on the east side of the villa.
