It gives me a special pleasure to enjoy the afternoons walking with my family. Here is just a small gallery from our yesterday’s walk in Kumenat area. This part of coast – between Biograd and Pakoštane, got it’s name from the work “convent” since the remains of a large convent have been found here. It was destroyed in the middle ages by the Venetians.
Not only that, the convent was built on the ruins of a very large Roman villa rustica: some sort of a farm that was basically a “center” for operating the large property. That way it would serve both as a residence of the landowner and his family and also as a farm management center. It often consisted of several separate buildings to accommodate farm workers and sheds and barns for animals and crops.
Today, no remains of the villa can be seen but walls, wells and other structures have been found just bellow the surface.
