Sv. Peter ( St. Peter)
Among the three villages on the outskirts, Sv. Peter is the closest to medieval Piran. It lies on a high slope above the Dragonja river valley, and offers views all the way to Piran Bay. Its main attraction is the ethnological museum Tonina hiša (Tonin House). A visit to this traditional Istrian stone made house will show you how people once lived here. You will also see a well preserved "torkla" - olive press machine - and experience what used to be a farm kitchen.
Sv. Peter is interesting to visit every time of the year. Its most notable festival occurs on the 29th June when the inhabitants celebrate the town's protector and namesake, St. Peter. A mass is held and afterwards there is a procession on the streets with the statue of St. Peter. In the evening, the locals organize a traditional Istrian dance party also known as "šagra".
